COVID 19 correspondence relating to local level coronavirus restrictions: FOI release

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

Information requested

All internal correspondence and written material, including but not limited to correspondence between officials and ministers, relating to The Health Protection (Coronavirus) (Restrictions and Requirements) (Local Levels) (Scotland) Amendment (No. 28) Regulations 2021.


Some of the information you have requested is available from the website:

Under section 25(1) of FOISA, we do not have to give you information which is already reasonably accessible to you. If, however, you do not have internet access to obtain this information from the website(s) listed, then please contact me again and I will send you a paper copy.

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance we are unable to provide some of the information you have requested because an exemption(s) under sections s.29(1)(a) (policy formulation), s.36(1) (legal advice), and s.38(1)(b) (personal information) of FOISA applies to that information.

The reasons why that exemptions applies are explained in Annex B.
