Communication relating to a national default 20mph speed limit: FOI release
FOI reference: FOI/19/02272
Date received: 2 Oct 2019
Date responded: 30 Oct 2019
Information requested

Any communications between the Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity, his department and officials and private businesses and private sector representative bodies in relation to a national default 20 mph speed limit in Scotland from 2017 to date.

Response

I enclose at Annex A 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 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.
