Response

 

I enclose a copy of some of the information you requested.

Thank you for clarifying that your request related to the current Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport, Jeane Freeman MSP.

To confirm, no meetings have taken place between representatives of the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport and Christine Grahame MSP's office.

Please note that an exemption applies - see the annex for details.

 

ANNEX

REASONS FOR NOT PROVIDING INFORMATION

An exemption under section 38(1)(b) of FOISA (personal information) applies to all of the information requested because it is personal data of a third party, ie names I 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.
