Relevance to the RTI Act

Schedule 4, part 4 of the RTI Act identifies factors favouring nondisclosure in the public interest. Relevantly, section 47(1)(a) of the FOI Act is replicated by schedule 4, part 4, section 9 of the RTI Act as a public interest factor favouring nondisclosure because of the public interest harm in disclosure, rather than a ground for exemption.
