FOI reference: FOI/18/02385
Date received: 3 September 2018  
Date responded: 3 October 2018
Information requested

Any correspondence between any minister or employee of the Scottish Government and any member of staff of Dumfries and Galloway Council since 5 September 2017 regarding the display of the Galloway Hoard.

I enclose a copy of the information you requested.

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance we are unable to provide some of the information you have requested because an exemption under section s.38(1)(b) (personal information) of FOISA applies to that information. 

I have also provided a link below to the Dumfries and Galloway Council website which provides details of the announcement of the Partnership Agreement between Dumfries and Galloway Council and National Museums Scotland.

Under section 25(1) of FOISA, we do not have to give you information which is already reasonably accessible to you.  If, however, you do not have internet access to obtain this information from the website(s) listed, then please contact me again and I will send you a paper copy.
