Dear Kathryn

Thank you for your email dated 15 May 2019.

 

Southport College and its member College, KGV, will not be providing you
with the information you have requested.  Southport College do not believe
the request passes the Public Interest Test as prescribed in the Act.
Specifically Section 43 of the Act permits public authorities to protect
their own commercial interests and those of third parties with whom they
engage.  We are determining to apply this Exemption to your request.

 

The Act also permits us to decline to provide the information where “it
would be used by the enquirer to gain competitive advantage in the market
place”.

Also the College does not release the names of staff below Senior Manager
level under Section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 Personal
Information (where disclosure may contravene the Data Protection Act
2018).

 

Kind regards
