2/3. Most of the information you have requested is enclosed in 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 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.
An exemption under Section 29(1)(a), 30(b)(ii) and 30 (c) applies to the information requested. The reason why this exemption applies is explained in Annex B.
An exemption under 25(1) of FOISA applies to some of the material in scope. Under section 25(1) of FOISA, we do not have to give you information which is already reasonably accessible to you. Links to the materials covered under section 25(1) are included in Annex A
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.
