Article 23 - Information accessible to applicant by other means
(1) Information is absolutely exempt information if it is reasonably available to the applicant, otherwise than under this Law, whether or not free of charge.
(2) A scheduled public authority that refuses an application for information on this ground must make reasonable efforts to inform the applicant where the applicant may obtain the information.
Article 36 - Information intended for future publication
(1) Information is qualified exempt information if, at the time when the request for the
information is made, the information is being held by a public authority with a view to
its being published within 12 weeks of the date of the request.
(2) A scheduled public authority that refuses an application for information on this ground
must make reasonable efforts to inform the applicant –
(a) of the date when the information will be published;
(b) of the manner in which it will be published; and
(c) by whom it will be published.
Public Interest Test
Article 36 is a qualified exemption, which means that a public interest test has to be undertaken to examine the circumstances of the case and decide whether, on balance, the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information.
Public interest considerations favouring disclosure
- disclosure of the information would support transparency and promote accountability to the general public.
Public interest considerations favouring withholding the information
- It is intended to publish registration data within 12 weeks of the receipt of this request on www.opendata.gov.je. The information is currently being collated prior to publication and therefore it is not possible to release it at this stage.
