Please see the information requested attached.  Some of the information was redacted as numbers are so small (less than 5) that individuals may be identifiable; therefore the information could be considered personal data within the meaning of the Data Protection Act 1998. Therefore the information is exempt from disclosure under section 38(1)(b) of Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.
