Records management of the First Minister's private emails: FOI release

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

Information requested

Would you tell me who does record the First Minister's private emails.


Emails about government business are always sent from or to government accounts and are therefore identifiable and accessible in our systems, even if received from a non-government account.

Information is held in line with the Scottish Government Records Management Plan, which you may wish to peruse.
