Further to your Freedom of Information request, please find attached: FOI 1788 - Data.
With regards to ‘Part 3, Your Culture’ row 18 “SENIOR LEADERSHIP TEAM” “how many have a declared Protected Characteristic” we have left this blank as it is classed as personal data and is exempt by virtue of Section 40 (2) of the act (as amended by Schedule 19 of the Data Protection Act 2018).
The information you have requested may directly or indirectly identify an individual and is therefore the personal data of a third party (as defined by the GDPR (a4.1) and the Data Protection Act 2018 (s3.2)). Releasing this personal data would be likely to contravene the first data protection principle (as defined by the GDPR (a5) and the Data Protection Act 2018 (s35)). This is an absolute exemption therefore neither the public interest test nor evidence of harm in disclosure needs to be outlined.
