Under section 25(1) of FOISA, we do not have to give you information which is already reasonably accessible to you. 

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance we are unable to provide some details relating to the information you have requested because an exemption under sections s.38(1)(b) Personal Information of FOISA applies to that information. The reasons why the exemptions apply are explained below.

Reasons for not providing information

An exemption applies.

An exemption under section, s.38(1)(b) Personal information of FOISA applies to some of the information you have requested. This relates to personal data, which if disclosed would contravene data protection regulations.
