FOI reference: FOI/19/01337

Information requested

All correspondence between Scottish Government and COSLA in regards to "Local Governance Review: Report Summarising Main Themes emerging from Strand 2 Consultation" published in May 2019.

Response

I enclose a copy of the information you requested. 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 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.
