FOI reference: FOI/19/00625

Information requested

 

Information regarding the email, or letter sent to my employer advising them of the circular 1/2017 and/or amended 1/2017, showing the addressees and the date sent.

 

Response

 

Please see Annex A.

An exemption under section 38(1)(b) of FOISA (personal information) applies to some of the information requested because it is personal data of a third party, i.e. names/contact details of individuals, and disclosing it would contravene the data protection principles in Article 5(1) of the General Data Protection Regulation and in section 34(1) of the Data Protection Act 2018.  This exemption is not subject to the ‘public interest test’, so we are not required to consider if the public interest in disclosing the information outweighs the public interest in applying the exemption.

 Though we cannot supply full email addresses, we can provide the domain names of the parties who were contacted regarding the LGPS 1/2017 Circular.
