The Council does hold the information requested but needs to fully consider the release of such information relating to commercial interests. Having considered this in relation to section 36 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and having taken advice we are unable to provide a list of businesses in arrears because this information would damage the businesses ability to trade if the public new that they were facing financial difficulties, as well as making businesses less likely to co-operate and share financial information freely with the Council.
