The complainant has requested various items of information in respect of the Welsh Government’s direct engagement with Horizon Nuclear Power Limited and Hitachi Limited commencing September 2014 to date and concerning the proposed Wylfa Newydd development. The Welsh Government refused the request by virtue of section 12 FOIA and regulation 12(4)(b) EIR. The Commissioner’s decision is that the Welsh Government was entitled to rely on section 12 in respect of the non-environmental information and regulation 12(4)(b) in relation to the environmental information. However, in failing to provide appropriate advice and assistance the Welsh Government breached section 16 FOIA.
