AND and West Moreton District Health Service (Department of Health)
(1999 S0247, 12 January 2000) 

The applicant sought an extension of time in which to lodge an application for external review under s.73(1)(d) of the FOI Act.  The Information Commissioner decided not to exercise the Commissioner's discretion under s.73(l)(d) in favour of the applicant, due to the extent of the unexplained delay and the Information Commissioner's view that the matter in issue clearly qualified for exemption under s.44(l) and s.46(1) of the FOI Act.
