FTTGC (i) Whether the requested information was exempt from disclosure by virtue of s.27 (1)(b) of FOIA because its disclosure would or would be likely to Prejudice relations between the United Kingdom and an international organization, namely the Commission of the European Union and
ii) Whether, if the answer to (i) was ‘yes’, the public interest was shown to favour withholding it.
(iii) Whether the requested information was exempt by virtue of s.35 (1) (a) because it related to the formulation or development of government policy and
(iv) Whether, if it did, the public interest was shown to favour withholding it.
Held: The Tribunal concludes that neither of the exemptions relied on is engaged. It therefore allows the appeal.
