Meetings between Cabinet Secretary for Constitution, Europe and External Affairs and Referendums (Scotland) Bill Team: FOI release
FOI reference: FOI/202000106102
Date received: 30 Oct 2020
Date responded: 25 Nov 2020
Information requested

Can you provide a list of dates of:
Any meetings (virtual, in person, over the phone and/or otherwise) between the Cabinet Secretary Michael Russell and any member and/or members of the Referendums Scotland Bill Team.

Response

The information you requested is set out below

As set out in previous FOI responses, members of the Referendums (Scotland) Bill team have been fully or partially redeployed to other business areas. As you have specified the ‘Referendums Scotland Bill Team’, in answering these requests, we have only considered work undertaken by members of the team in their capacity as members of that team, that is meetings in relation to referendums, rather than work they have done in relation to their other duties.

The first civil servant joined Elections and FOI Division to work on the Referendums (Scotland) Bill on 1 April 2019. On that basis we have considered meetings from that date.
