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