Dear Kirsty,

In order to take forward your email, received 9 July 2018 timed 10:21 hours, as a valid FOI request, please note the following advice from the Scottish Information Commissioner’s website:

“The Act says that a request must include the name of the applicant and an address for correspondence. The Commissioner has confirmed that an e-mail address is sufficient when you are asking for information. However, if you send your request by email, you must give your name in the body of the email to fulfil the requirement that the name of the applicant is given. Even if your name appears in your email address (e.g. [email address]) you must add your name to the text of your request, so that it is clear who the email is from.
You must give your real name, as the public authority does not have to answer your request if you have used a false name or pseudonym. The Commissioner will not be able to carry out an investigation if he finds out that you have used a false name.

If you have particular reasons for not wanting to reveal your identity to the public authority, you should ask a friend or family member to make the request for information.”

Yours sincerely,
