Response

I attach a copy of the information you requested at ANNEX A. I have put the documents and emails in to a table. I have redacted the names and telephone numbers of staff members below Deputy Director level.

Some of the information you have requested is available from Glasgow City Council. Under section 25(1) of FOISA, we do not have to give you information which is already reasonably accessible to you. 
If, however, you do not have internet access to obtain this information from the websites listed, then please contact me again and I will send you a paper copy.

Whilst 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 exception under the following regulations apply:
Section 25(1): Information otherwise accessible
Section 28(1): Relations within the UK
Section 29: Formulation of Scottish Administration policy
Section 30(c): The effective conduct of public affairs in relation to communications with external stakeholders
Section 38(1)(b): Personal information
The reasons why these exemptions apply are explained in ANNEX B to this letter.
