Office of Communications v Information Comr; [2009] WLR (D) 71

When balancing the public interest in maintaining an exception to disclosure of environmental information against the public interest in its disclosure the correct test was to consider whether the aggregate public interest in maintaining the exception outweighed the public interest in disclosure. A benefit arising from unlawful use of disclosed information could be taken into account as an aspect of the public interest in disclosure.”
