Freedom of information – Request. Two appeals were heard together as they concerned common issues regarding s 14 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. In the second appeal, issues arose regarding requests for information made under reg 12 of the Environmental Information Regulations 2004, SI 2004/331. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, gave guidance on the meaning of 'vexatious' and 'manifestly unreasonable' and whether past requests could be taken into account in considering whether a fresh request was vexatious.
