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.
The Scottish Government is committed to publishing all information released in response to Freedom of Information requests. View all FOI responses at http://www.gov.scot/foi-responses
