On behalf of another individual, the complainant – a firm of solicitors – has requested information about undergraduate admissions from Imperial College London (‘ICL’). ICL released some information and advised that some information is not held in an easily extractable format. ICL withheld the remaining information under section 36(2)(c) of the FOIA (prejudice to effective conduct of public affairs) and considers the public interest favours maintaining the exemption. The Commissioner’s decision is as follows: ICL is entitled to withhold the information requested in question 16 of the request under section 36(2)(c) of the FOIA and the public interest favours maintaining this exemption. The Commissioner does not require ICL to take any remedial steps.
