Court quashes information ruling

BBC News Scotland

The Court of Session has backed a council's refusal to comply with a Freedom of Information request.

Dumfries and Galloway Council had appealed against a decision by Information Commissioner Kevin Dunion ordering it to release the details.

The request centred on complaints to trading standards about a particular company over a period of 10 years.

The council said the Enterprise Act prohibited disclosure and its appeal has been ruled to be successful.
