Dear Ms Duncan 
Freedom of Information application 
I refer to your application to the Department of the Premier and Cabinet (DPC) under 
DPC Circular PC031, ‘Disclosure of Cabinet documents 10 years or older’, seeking 
access to: 
Departmental Docket 
Cabinet Submission Title 
25/06/1990  MA223-90 
Veterinary Surgeons Board 
Mr Lynn Arnold 
One document was identified as answering the terms of your application and I have 
determined to release this document in part.  
A section of this document contains information relating to the personal affairs of 
multiple third parties. Under clause 6(1) of Schedule 1 to the Freedom of Information 
Act 1991 
(the Act), information is exempt if releasing it would involve the 
‘unreasonable disclosure of information concerning the personal affairs of any person’. 
I have considered that the application of clause 6(1) requires two elements, one that 
the information contains the personal affairs of that person; and secondly that 
disclosure would be unreasonable and contrary to public interest. I have determined 
that this information falls within the category of ‘personal affairs’ as listed under 
section 4(1) of the Act, thereby meeting the first elements of this clause. Further, I 
have considered whether the disclosure of this information would be unreasonable. In 
doing so, I have considered the relevance of this information to the public and the 
likelihood as to whether the person in question would consent to disclosure. I have 
concluded that this information was likely obtained in confidence and through 
measures which would otherwise make it unavailable to the public. I have considered 
the factors in favour of public interest and determined that these factors are 
outweighed by the need to maintain personal confidentiality in this instance. 
Therefore, I have determined that this information meets the requirements of clause 
6(1) and is thereby exempt pursuant to this clause.

Clause 6 – Documents affecting personal affairs 

(1)  A document is an exempt document if it contains matter the disclosure of which 
would involve the unreasonable disclosure of information concerning the 
personal affairs of any person (living or dead). 

Right to internal review 
If you are aggrieved with this determination, you have a right to apply for internal 
review under subsection 29(1) of the Act. Pursuant to subsection 29(2) of the Act, 
your application must: 
  be in writing 
  be addressed to the principal officer, and 
  emailed to within 30 days after the day on which you 
receive this letter or within such further time as the principal officer of DPC may 
If you have any questions in relation to this matter, please contact Denise Cranwell,
