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 exemptions under Section 38(1)(b) (personal information) of FOISA apply to that information. The reasons why the exemptions apply are explained in the Annex to this letter.
Annex - Reasons for not providing information
Section 38(1)(b) - personal data of a third party
An exemption under Section 38(1)(b) of FOISA (personal information) applies the information requested because it is personal data of a third party. 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.
