A copy of any pre-meeting briefing, all people in attendance, agenda for meeting, note or minute taken and/or action points and any post meeting briefing in relation to the meeting between First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and Mr Si Bingjun, CEO of Petrochina International, on the 1st September 2016.
I have concluded that the original decision should be confirmed, with modification.
In relation to the information redacted from the original response, I agree that exceptions under regulation 10(5)(e) (confidentiality of commercial or industrial information, provided for by law to protect legitimate economic interest) and regulation 11(2) (personal data in relation to a third party) of the EIRs applies. Reasoning for the application of those exceptions was provided in the original response.
However, I have identified information that was redacted from the original response and to which neither exception applies, for example information in relation to planning applications which is already in the public domain. I attach a modified version of the information released.
