Willow v Information Commissioner Ministry of Justice

Freedom of information – Exempt information. The First-tier Tribunal's judgment, finding in favour of non-disclosure of the second defendant Ministry of Justice's Minimising and Managing Physical Restraint training manual, could not possibly be said to be irrational, perverse or inadequately reasoned. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in dismissing the appellant's appeal, further held that the category of case where the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, as an unincorporated treaty, might be relevant in English law did not apply, as the meaning of the words 'public interest' was not in doubt.
