Request for Jersey Telecom annual report and accounts issued in 2014 (FOI)
Request for Jersey Telecom annual report and accounts issued in 2014 (FOI)Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by States of Jersey and published on 20 March 2015.
Prepared internally, no external costs.
Please could you send me a copy of the full annual report and accounts of Jersey Telecoms issued during 2014.
The States publish only summary financial statements for Jersey Telecoms. However, as shareholder they will receive the full annual report and accounts and it is a copy of this full report that I am asking for under FOI.
The States of Jersey publish the JT Group Limited: Annual report and Financial Statements on the below link.
Ministerial Decisions MDTR20140069
These published accounts do not include the detailed notes. As the notes contain commercially sensitive data the Treasury and Resources Department are refusing this request under Article 33 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011. See exemption details below.
Article 33 Commercial Interests
Information is qualified exempt information if:
a. it constitutes a trade secret ; or
b. its disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice the commercial interests of a person (including the scheduled public authority holding the information)
Article 33 is a Qualified Exemption and therefore is subject to a Public Interest Test. Disclosure of the notes to the accounts would be likely to prejudice the commercial interests of JT and the public authority if that detail was released. It is therefore not considered to be in the public interest to release this information at this time and the exemption should be maintained.
Justification for exemption: the notes to the accounts contain commercially sensitive data and the Treasury and Resources Department believe that this information should not be released.
