It is accepted that there may be public interest in the information sought, however disclosure would prejudice the financial interests of the JFRS and the Government of Jersey and it is therefore considered that the limited public interest is outweighed by the likely financial loss. Further enquiries regarding how to access these reports should be made directly to the JFRS at

(a) it constitutes a trade secret; or
