Cabinet Secretary for Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform visit to Coca Cola factory: EIR release

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

Information requested

You asked for any documentation pertaining to Roseanna Cunningham’s visit to the Coca Cola factory on 23.1.19. This should include any letters, emails, briefings, and notes of conversations (including telephone) pertaining to the visit.


I enclose a copy of most of the information you requested in the format you asked for, with personal information redacted.

Annex - Reasons for not providing information
An exception applies

An exception under regulation 10(4)(d) of the EIRs applies to some of the information you have requested. The exception applies to documents that are in draft or are otherwise incomplete. The final version of the document has been released, however.

This exception is subject to the ‘public interest test’. Therefore, taking account of all the circumstances of this case, we have considered if the public interest in disclosing the information outweighs the public interest in applying the exception. We have found that, on balance, the public interest lies in favour of upholding the exception.
