Summary: The Applicant made a request to the Rooms Corporation for submissions made by the Third Party business to a Royal Commission. The Rooms decided to grant access to the records, but also decided to notify the Third Party under section 19. The Third Party filed a complaint objecting to the disclosure of some of the information under section 39 (harm to the business interests of a third party). The Commissioner determined that the Third Party had not met the test for section 39 and recommended that the Rooms Corporation disclose the information to the Applicant.
