Information requested

1. Which of the groups listed here at this page ( are still active?

2. For each of the groups listed at (a) when their last meeting was (b) the budget and/or number of Scottish Government officials servicing each group.


Attached is a copy of the requested information. 

We have interpreted that the definition of budget and officials servicing the group refers to only secretariat support. Budget in this context does not include officials’ salaries.

Number of officials listed does not represent full time equivalency (FTE), unless specifically identified as such. Secretariat support is provided in most cases as part of wider duties. Many groups meet only a few times a year and require very little secretariat support through the officials listed.
