ZGQ and Pine Rivers Shire Council

(2005 F0391; 30 November 2005)

s.44(1), s46(1)(a), s.46(1)(b)

The applicant sought a review of a decision by the Pine Rivers Shire Council to disclose documents to the complainants regarding an alleged attack on the complainants' cat.  The applicant submitted that the documents in issue contained information concerning their personal affairs and such information had been provided to the Council on a confidential basis. 

Applying Willsford and Brisbane City Council (1996) 3 QAR 368, Assistant Commissioner Rangihaeata decided to vary the decision under review by finding that the matter remaining in issue did not qualify for exemption from disclosure under s.44(1), s.46(1)(a) or s.46(1)(b) of the FOI Act.
