Please note the Freedom of Information (FOI) Publication Scheme lists certain standard information that organisations must publish. This means you can easily access information such as roles and contact details without waiting for us to respond and using the published information also reduces the demand on the public sector in responding to requests.
The FOI s21 exemption means we are not required to provide information if the information is reasonably accessible by other means. Please visit our website where you will find the information referred to in our response above as well as other useful information.
