As you can see within the tables provided for questions 5 and 6 above,
where the mean is based on a group of 7 or fewer individuals, the
information has been withheld (represented as ‚ȧ7).¬† This information has
been withheld because, with such low numbers, even providing the
information without names, there is a risk the individuals may be
identifiable which means that these are personal data of third parties, or
if linked with other personal identifiers in the public domain, would be
likely to become personal data.  This information has been withheld under
Section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) by virtue of
Section 40(3A)(i).

 

Section 40(2) of the FOIA allows a public authority to withhold
information under the FOIA where (i) the requested information is personal
data relating to someone other than the requester, and (ii) its disclosure
would breach any of the Data Protection principles.  In this case, we
believe that the requested information could relate to and identify
individuals and therefore would be personal data.  The disclosure of these
personal data would not be within the reasonable expectations of the
individuals concerned and it would be unfair to do so; this therefore
breaches the first Data protection principle.

 

As the Section 40(2) exemption is an absolute one, there is no need to
conduct a public interest test.

 

 

You are free to use any information supplied for your own use, including
for non-commercial research purposes. The information may also be used for
the purposes of news reporting. However, any other type of re-use, for
example by publishing or issuing copies to the public, will require the
permission of the copyright owner.
