Please note that due to the large volume of information, you will receive a separate email containing the documents requested.
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 sections 28(1) (relations within the United Kingdom), 38(1)(b) (personal information), 30(c) (prejudice to effective conduct of public affairs), 30(b) (free and frank provision of advice or exchange of views) and 17 (information not held for the purposes of FOISA) apply to that information.
With regards to section 17, some of the information you have requested is not held by the Scottish Government for the purposes of FOISA because it was received in confidence from the UK Government. This means that, under the terms of section 3(2)(a)(ii) of FOISA, we are unable to disclose it in response to your request. However, you may wish to submit a new request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) to the UK Government’s Major Events Directorate who should be able to assist you further.
