Correspondence with employees of Energy Action Scotland: EIR release

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

Information requested

All Scottish Government correspondence (including Ministers, Civil Servants, Special Advisers, and Press Officers) with employees of Energy Action Scotland, 1st January 2022 - date.


I enclose a copy of most of the information you requested which includes correspondence between Scottish Government and employees of Energy Action Scotland for the period mentioned above. Email attachments are attached separately, with each relevant attachment detailed by number on the email documents.

An exception under regulation 11(2) of the EIRs (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 exception 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 exception.
