You asked for:
- All drafts of the Werritty report into grouse moor management communicated between Prof Alan Werritty (or his team) and Scottish Government Ministers.
- All correspondence between Scottish Government Ministers and the author(or his team), from the time of submission, and receipt of the first draft by Scottish Ministers, to the date of publication of the final report.
- Copies of all correspondence (regarding Werritty report) and RSPB Scotland, the Revive Coalition, Chris Packham and Dr Ruth Tingay.
I enclose a copy of some of the information you requested. While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance the Scottish Government does not have some of the information you have requested.
The Scottish Government does not have the information
Section 17(1) of FOISA (information not held) requires the Scottish Government to notify you if it does not have the information you requested. The Scottish Government does not have the information you have asked for because we received no drafts of Professor Werritty’s report on Grouse Moor Management.
We are unable to release the final version of Professor Werritty’s report with this response, as we will be publishing the report very shortly. We will however send you a copy as soon as we publish it.
The Scottish Government is committed to publishing all information released in response to Freedom of Information requests. View all FOI responses at http://www.gov.scot/foi-responses.
