Details of Angela Constance's ministerial engagements with Leo Cushley in 2016 and 2017 including minutes of meetings and correspondence.
Information should include, but not be limited to, the minutes and correspondence surrounding the meetings on 11 May and 25 May 2017.
I enclose a copy of all of the information you requested. All communication between the Scottish Government and Archbishop Leo Cushley's office have been included in Annex B.
Reasons for not providing correspondence
An exemption applies.
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, names and contact details of individuals; and disclosing it would contravene the data protection principles in Schedule 1 to the Data Protection Act 1998. 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.
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
