All notes, records or minutes of meetings/calls between Scottish Government officials and individuals/organisations to discuss amendments on freedom of expression to the Hate Crime and Public Order (Scotland) Bill which took place between 1 December 2020 and 2 February 2021.

Response

I attach a copy of some of the information you requested at Annexes A-E. Please note some sections have been redacted where it relates to the personal data of third parties.

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. This is because notes, records or minutes of meetings or calls between Scottish Government officials and individuals/organisations to discuss amendments on freedom of expression (per the recorded list provided under FOI response 202100150494) on the Bill are not held in every instance.
