FOI reference: FOI/18/03364  
Date received: 13 November 2018  
Date responded: 12 December 2018
 
Information requested
 
Detailed minutes of any meetings between Richard Lochhead and the Royal Historical Society in the last three months.
 
Response
 
I enclose a copy of most of the information you requested in the format you asked for in Annex A.
 
Reasons for not providing information
 
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, ie eg names and contact details of individuals>, 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.
