Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.


FOI reference: FOI/18/02504
Date received: 12 September 2018
Date responded: 9 October 2018
 
Information requested
Details of any correspondence (emails, typed or handwritten notes, letters, phone calls, minutes of meetings, documents or otherwise) between Scottish Government ministers and Julie Webster or anyone at Maryhill Foodbank within the last three years.
Response

I enclose a copy of some of the information you requested in the format you asked for.

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. The reasons why that exemption(s) applies are explained below.

Reasons for not providing information

An exemption applies.

An exemption(s) under section(s) s.38(1)(b) of FOISA applies to some of the information you have requested.  Section 38(1)(b) relates to the personal data of a third party. This exemption applies because the information relates to a living person and the person is both identified and identifiable from the data.  

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.
