Welsh v Scottish Information Commissioner

Freedom of information – Local government. Court of Session: Refusing an appeal by an appellant who was dissatisfied with the response to his request for information relating to the process of revision of a local authority's disciplinary policy and applied to the Scottish Information Commissioner, who decided that all relevant information held by council had been identified and disclosed to him, the court held that the first ground of appeal raised no point of law and appeared to proceed on a misunderstanding of the role of the Commissioner and of the appeal court, a similar misconception appeared to run through the second ground of appeal, and the third ground, which appeared to be dependent on the first two grounds and identified no relevant point of law, was also without merit.
