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 the section(s) 38(1)(b) (personal information)] and 33(1)(b) - Substantial prejudice to commercial interests of FOISA apply to that information. Where this is the case, the text has been marked '[REDACTED]'.

Section 33(1)(b) - substantial prejudice to commercial interests - is subject to the public interest test. Therefore, taking account of all the circumstances of this case, we have considered if the public interest in disclosing the information outweighs the public interest in applying the exemptions. We have found that, on balance, the public interest lies in favour of upholding the exemptions.
