Ladies and gentlemen welcome to episode 14 of the UK’s first Freedom of Information podcast.
I’m Ibrahim Hasan. In July (32) and August (10) 2008 the Information Commissioner published forty two (42) decisions whilst the Information Tribunal published ten (10). I’m here to guide you through some of these.
In this episode, amongst others, we will be discussing decisions on:

• The definition of information and when it is held by a public authority
• The applicability of FOI to information held in solicitors’ files
• Vexatious requests
• Section 21 and what is reasonably accessible information
• Section 35 and the public interest
• Section 36 and requests about requests
• Disclosure of statistics
• Disclosure of legal advice
• AND when losing bidders’ information can be disclosed under section 43
