You asked for copies of documents held by the Scottish Government which refer to the Defence and Security Equipment International [conference] dated from April 2019 to the present.
I enclose a copy of the information you requested by email attachment.
While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance we are unable to provide some of the information you have requested because an exemption under section 38(1)(b) (personal information) of FOISA applies to that information.
The reasons why that exemption applies is explained in the Annex to this letter.
REASONS FOR NOT PROVIDING INFORMATION
An exemption applies
An exemption(s) under section(s) an exemption under section 38(1)(b) (personal information) of FOISA applies to some of the information you have requested. This is because it is the personal data of a third party.
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.
The Scottish Government is committed to publishing all information released in response to Freedom of Information requests. View all FOI responses at http://www.gov.scot/foi-responses.
