“Information supplied by applicants for animal experimentation licences was exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 if the official in possession of the information knew or had reasonable grounds for believing that it was given in confidence, which was a subjective test requiring consideration of the position when the information was given and the intentions of the giver at that time, rather than an objective test derived from the law of confidentiality.”
