Correspondence with Eva Bolander: FOI release

Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

Information requested

Your asked for: Any correspondence (letters, emails, minutes of meetings, phone calls or otherwise) in 2019 between Nicola Sturgeon or Scottish Government special advisers and Eva Bolander.


From our searches we found one piece of correspondence which relates to your request.

An exemption under section 38(1)(b) of FOISA (personal information) applies to the information requested because it is personal data of a third party, contact details of individuals has been redacted, 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.
