UK: "Government Ordered To Publish Redacted Fracking Report in Full"

"Heavily redacted report on the impact of fracking in the UK should be released in full, information commissioner tells environment department ".

"A heavily-redacted government report on the impacts of fracking on house prices, businesses and services in rural areas must be published in full, the UK’s information commissioner has ruled.

The report was released in July 2014 in response to a freedom of information request from Greenpeace but with 78 redactions, including 16 in the conclusion chapter.

The information commissioner upheld Greenpeace’s appeal against these redactions on Thursday: 'There is a strong public interest in understanding the full detail of the research that has been carried out and how it has been considered.'"
