Information requested

Following the Parliamentary question S5W-24511 by Jamie Halcro Johnston MSP, and subsequently answered by Graeme Dey MSP on 26 August 2019, I wish to have a breakdown of the official visits by the First Minister between January 1 2012 and March 1 2020.

  • Can this be broken down by numbers in terms of Parliamentary constituency and if possible broken down by the year in which the First Minister made each of these visits?
Response

I have enclosed the information you have requested, please see annex A. Please note, any official visits before November 2014 listed in the attachment were carried out by the former First Minister.
