Response

 

Relative to the above, I have been advised of the following:

3.    No

 

4.    Bill Morton (Fleet Manager).

 

Please note the direct contact number and direct email address have been
withheld under section 30(c) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act
2002.

Section 30(c) states –

“information is exempt information if its disclosure under this Act, would
otherwise prejudice substantially, or be likely to prejudice
substantially, the effective conduct of public affairs.”

Section 30 (c) is subject to the public interest test – the information
should still be released if the public interest in disclosing the
information is greater than the public interest in withholding it.

These employees can all be contacted via the Council’s Customer Service
Centre on 01738 475000, [1][email address]  or at Perth and Kinross
Council, Pullar House, 35 Kinnoull Street, Perth, PH1 5GD. I therefore do
not consider that the public interest would be served by the disclosure of
direct contact numbers and emails.

5.    This work is carried out in-house. Therefore, we do not hold this
information. In terms of section 17(1)(b) of the Freedom of Information
(Scotland) Act 2002, this is formal notice that this information is not
