Nicola Sturgeon First Minister - correspondence on performance of ScotRail: FOI release

Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.


Information requested

 

Any correspondence (letters,emails or otherwise) in November and December 2018 addressed to Nicola Sturgeon on the performance of ScotRail.

 

Response

 

Please find the information you have requested in Annex A.

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