The Senior Investigator varied the decision of the HSE. She found that sections 30(1)(b) and 37(1) applied to most of the records and that, on balance, the public interest did not favour the release of the majority of them. However, she found that the HSE was not justified under section 37 in withholding access to some of the records sought, and she directed their release. She also found that section 31(1)(a) applied to a number of other records and that the HSE was justified in withholding these. The Senior Investigator found that the HSE was not justified in refusing to grant access to additional records located during the review, on the basis of section 15(1)(a) and directed the HSE to undertake a fresh decision making process in relation to these records.
