Meetings between First Minister and Cllr Susan Aitken: FOI release

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

FOI reference: FOI/18/00111
Date received: 15 January 2018
Date responded: 7 February 2018

Information requested

Documentation and minutes of the discussions between Nicola Sturgeon and Cllr Susan Aitken - Leader, Glasgow City Council from their meeting on the 23 August 2017.


I enclose a copy of the agenda for the meeting in the annex to this letter.

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance the Scottish Government does not have minutes of the discussion. This is because we are not required to routinely minute discussion which take place during visits of this nature such as goodwill visits, hospitality events, or courtesy conversations. As no policy decisions arose in this case it was considered sufficient to record within the official diary that the meeting had taken place.

This is a formal notice under section 17(1) of FOISA that the Scottish Government does not have the information you have requested.
