Arrangements for engagements at Tain Academy Campus and Inverness royal Academy: FOI release

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

Information requested

The period of the last 6 months all copies of letters/emails/notes/minutes/briefings of correspondence between Scottish government officials and Highland Council officials regarding arrangements for the Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills' Ministerial Engagements at Tain Academy Campus and Inverness royal Academy on Monday 19th December 2022.


I attach a copy of most of the information you requested.

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance we are unable to provide some the information you have requested because an exemption(s) under section(s) s.38(1)(b) (personal information) of FOISA applies to that information. The reasons why that exemption applies are explained below.

An exemption(s) under section(s) s.38(1)(b) of FOISA applies to some the information you have requested. This exemption applies to third party personal data where disclosing the personal data would contravene the data protection principles in Article 5(1) of the UK GDPR. In this case this would apply to the names, email addresses, phone numbers and addresses of officials in the requested correspondence.

This exemption is not subject to the 'public interest test', so we are not required to consider if the publicinterest in disclosing the information outweighs the public interest in applying the exemption.
