Information request and response under the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004.

Information requested

On 9th May 2023, Cabinet Secretary for Wellbeing Economy, Fair Work and Energy, Neil Gray, gave evidence to the Net Zero, Energy and Transport Committee at Holyrood. Please provide all briefing materials prepared for Neil Gray for this meeting.


I enclose a copy of most of the information you requested.

Some of the information you have requested is available on the Scottish Parliament website here. Under regulation 6(1)(b) of the EIRs, we do not have to give you information which is already publicly available and easily accessible to you in another form or format. If, however, you do not have internet access to obtain this information from the website listed, then please contact me again and I will send you a paper copy.

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 exceptions under regulations 11 (personal data) and 10(4)(e) (internal communications) of the EIRs applies to that information. The reasons why these exceptions apply are explained in the Annex to this letter
