The Senior Investigator varied the decision. She found that section 15(1)(a) of the FOI Act applied in relation to any further records within the scope of the request as made. She found that Pobal was justified in refusing access to parts of records under section 36(1)(b) and, in the case of part of one record under 37(1) of the Act. She found that the public interest did not weigh in favour of granting access to those parts. She annulled Pobals decision to refuse access to a small part of one record and directed its release.
