Extending coverage of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 to registered social landlords: consultation

This consultation is on the terms of the draft order extending coverage of Scotland's Freedom of Information legislation to Registered Social Landlords.

Next Steps

It is clearly in the interests of potential requestors as well as RSLs that the terms of an order are clear to ensure its effectiveness.

We therefore consider it important that all interested parties have the opportunity to comment on the proposed order - particularly given the inclusion of RSL subsidiaries

insofar as they also undertake functions as defined in the draft order.

Comments are therefore invited on the draft order at Annex C by 7 March 2018.

We anticipate publishing a final consultation response following this further engagement on the precise terms of the order.
