Information requested

Briefing prepared for Scottish government ministers from civil servants on the Royal Wedding held on 19 May 2018.


Please find attached the information 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.
