Correspondence referencing Long Covid to and from special advisers: FOI release

Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

Information requested

A copy of any correspondence from 2 August 2021 - 29 September 2021 to and from Special advisors referencing Long Covid in any context (including emails, word documents and meeting minutes).


I enclose a copy of some of the material you have requested, in electronic form.

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance we are unable to provide some of the information you have requested because an exemption under Section 38(1)(b) (personal information) and Section 30(b)(ii) (free and frank exchange of views for the purposes of deliberation) of FOISA applies to that information. The reasons why these exemptions apply are explained in Annex A to this letter.
