Dear S Carroll

Any feedback you provide will be strictly anonymous and much appreciated.


Summary of Response


A copy of the information is attached.


Please be aware that I have decided not to release full details of all
staff as this information falls under the exemption in Section 40
subsections 2 and 3(A)(a) of the Freedom of Information Act. 


This is because it would breach the first data protection principle as:

 a. It is not fair to disclose these people’s personal details to the
world and is likely to cause damage or distress to staff
 b. These details are not of sufficient interest to the public to warrant
an intrusion into the privacy of those staff.


Annex A in the attached letter sets out the exemption in full.
