Protection Act 1998, and (b) the release of the information requested for those individuals 
would be in breach of the data protection principles as defined in the Data Protection Act

sections 38(1)(b) and 38(2) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002. This 
exemption is an absolute exemption under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.
