Former First Minister meeting with Frazer McKinley, The Promise Scotland: FOI release

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

Information requested

Details of the meeting that took place between the then First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, and Frazer McKinley, from the Promise Scotland, on the 14th November 2022. This should include the agenda, any papers/briefings provided to the Minister to help prepare for the meeting, any papers used and discussed during the meeting and the note/minute taken from the meeting.


I enclose a copy of some 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 exemptions under section 38(1)(b) of FOISA applies to that information. The reasons why that exemptions applies are explained below.

An exemption under section 38(1)(b) of FOISA (personal information) applies to a small amount of the information requested because it is personal data of a third party, i.e. names, email addresses and contact details, 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.
