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

Information requested

"Copies of all correspondence received by the Scottish Government and its ministers in relation to South Lanarkshire College from Jan 1 2022 to October 14 2022".


I attach a copy of the information you have requested under Annex A.

An exemption under section 38(1)(b) of FOISA (personal information) applies to some of the information requested because it is personal data of a third party, i.e. 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.

There has been correspondence received by the way of other Freedom of Information requests, the responses to which are already publicly available on our website. This is a formal notice under section 25(1) of FOISA that we do not have to give you information which is already publicly accessible. We have however provided the relevant links below. If you do not have internet access to obtain this information from the website listed, then please contact me again and I will send you a paper copy.
