The complainant requested information about employees who had been suspended during a specified period. Betsi Cadwaladr Health Board (‘the Health Board’) provided some information, stating some information was not held and withheld other information under section 40(2) of the FOIA. The Commissioner’s decision is that the Health Board correctly relied on section 40(2) of the FOIA for the non disclosure of the requested information. The Commissioner has, however, identified some procedural issues surrounding the Health Board’s handling of the request. The Commissioner requires no further action to be taken.
