Access to information rights in Scotland: consultation

A consultation on access to information rights in Scotland. This follows the work of the Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee (PAPLS) in the fifth session of the Scottish Parliament, to undertake post-legislative scrutiny of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA).

7. Next steps following this consultation exercise

Following the conclusion of this consultation exercise, and our analysis of the responses the Scottish Government will provide a formal response to the consultation setting out our next steps.

Any future Bill containing specific measures to amend FOISA would be subject to a further full public consultation exercise in the usual way. We will also continue to engage widely on the development of access to information rights within the existing statutory framework.
