Information requested

You asked for the following information:

“Who attended a meeting at Gretna with Jamie Hepburn MSP, along with 30 or so others on the 13th January 2020.”

Response

I assume your query refers to Mr Hepburn’s attendance at the Manufacturing roundtable that was held at 12.30 on 13 January 2020. With that meeting in mind I have included the attendee list for this meeting in Annex B. Please note that some exemptions apply under section 38 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA). This exemption is further explained in Annex A.

ANNEX A
REASONS FOR NOT PROVIDING INFORMATION
An exemption under section 38 applies.

  • the personal data of the person requesting the information (section 38(1)(a));
  • the personal data of a third party – but only if other conditions apply (section 38(1)(b));
  • personal census information (section 38(1)(c)); or
  • a deceased person’s health record (section 38(1)(d)).
