I have also enclosed a read out from a meeting between Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Jobs and Fair Work and Matthew Jury.
Some information has been redacted because exemptions under section 38(1)(b) of FOISA applies to that information. The reasons why these exemption(s) apply are explained below.
An exemption under section 38(1)(b) of FOISA (personal information) applies to a small amount of the information requested because it is personal data of a third party, i.e. names and contact details and disclosing it would contravene the data protection principles in Article 5(1) of the General Data Protection Regulation and in section 34(1) of the Data Protection Act 2018. 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
