FIE has appealed to the Information Commissioner Cork County Councils' refusal to release documents relating to Haulbowline Island. There are no grounds for refusing data recording emission to the environment in the Access to Information on the Environment Regulations.

FIE also provided the Information Commissioner with one Report that the Council refused to release which has now been released to the group by the EPA.
The ‘Interim Report on the environmental status of Haulbowline Island' of May 2008 says that the authors felt ‘obliged' to report the necessity of ‘emergency treatment immediately'.
