Information requested

Individual versions of the flag flying policy documents from number one through to 22.


Please find attached individual copies of the documents as requested.

You will see that personal data have been redacted. This is because an exemption under section 38 (1) of FOISA (personal information) applies. Disclosing personal information would contravene 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.
