Response

1. The full details of the Minister for Employability and Training's diary, including all engagements, for the 17 May 2017.

I enclose a copy of most of the above information you requested in Annex A.

An exemption under section 38(1)(b) of FOISA (personal information) applies to some of the information you have requested because it is personal data of a third party and disclosing it (names/personal details) would contravene the data protection principles in Schedule 1 to the Data Protection Act 1998. This exemption is not subject to the 'public interest test', so we are not required to consider if the public interest in disclosing the information outweighs the public interest in applying the exemption.

Please state the location and times of the meeting with Glasgow City Council.

The event ran from 10:00 - 11:00 at Glasgow Royal Infirmary, 84 Castle Street, Glasgow, G4 0SF

Please state the purpose, nature and details of the engagement at Shettleston station.

Mr Hepburn's visit to Shettleston Station was in a private capacity therefore we have no further information regarding this engagement other than times and address.

2. Correspondence relating to Jamie Hepburn's diary engagements on 30 May and 2 June 2017

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance the Scottish Government does not have the information you have requested. This is a formal notice under section 17(1) of FOISA that the Scottish Government does not have the information you have requested.

3. Any correspondence, meeting agendas or meeting minutes, details of phone calls or any other communications, both internal and external, regarding the Minister's diary and engagements for the 17 May 2017.

The full briefing pack for the engagement is enclosed at Annex B.

The agenda for the engagement 'Monthly Fair Work Meeting' is enclosed at Annex C.
