Alex Rowley correspondence on draft budget: FOI release
FOI reference: FOI/19/00705
Date received: 12 Mar 2019
Date responded: 8 Apr 2019
Information requested

All communications from Alex Rowley MSP on the draft budget in calendar year 2019.

Response

I enclose a copy of the information you have requested.

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 the names/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.
