A90/A96 Haudagain Improvement scheme: EIR release

Information request and response under the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004.

Information requested

Please may i request an up to date list of contractors, subcontractors and suppliers that have or will be involved with the A90/A96 Haudagain Improvement scheme.

We are applying the exemption at section 39(2) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA), so that we do not also have to deal with your request under FOISA.

This exemption is subject to the ‘public interest test’. Therefore, taking account of all the circumstances of this case, we have considered if the public interest in disclosing the information outweighs the public interest in applying the exemption. We have found that, on balance, the public interest lies in favour of upholding the exemption, because there is no public interest in dealing with the same request under two different regimes. This is essentially a technical point and has no material effect on the outcome of your request.
