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.

(c) by whom it will be published.

(3) In this Article, “published” means published –

(a) by a public authority; or

(b) by any other person.

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 withholding the information

  • It is intended to publish the Annual Report and Accounts on within 12 weeks of the receipt of this request. Publishing the draft document in such close proximity to the final version could potentially lead to confusion.​
