FOI reference: FOI/19/02193

Information requested

You asked for agendas, minutes, reports and any other publications distributed relating to the National Strategic Group for Sport and Physical Activity from January 2018 until 24/09/2019.

Response

I enclose copies of most of the information you requested.  While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance we are unable to provide some of the information you have requested because an exemption under section 38(1)(b) (personal information) of FOISA applies to that information. The reasons why that exemption applies are explained in the Annex to this letter.

Annex - Reasons for not providing information
An exemption applies

An exemption under section 38(1)(b) of FOISA (personal information) applies to one piece of the information requested because it is personal data of a third party, (i.e. the name of an individual) 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.
