Does anyone else find these decision notices extremeny brief and unhelpful ? If you comapre them with the detail you get on the Irish IC site I feel there is a missed opportunity to share good practice and an understanding of how our IC really views these issues.

Agreed. I also saw a decision notice from the Scottish Commissioner and it was very detailed. It explained in great detail how the relevant exemptions should and shouldn't be applied, along with how the public interest test can affect the application of the exemptions. We just don't get much useful guidance from the terse notices on the ICO site.

Glad its not just me. I am sure if I responded to an applicant in similar fashion I could be castigated by the IC for not giving full and proper reasons and explanations for my decisions as required by section 17
