Senior staff executive team question and answer session: FOI release

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

Information requested

It is my understanding that the Scottish Government senior staff executive team carries out Q&A sessions with other government staff and there have been three of these since last July.

Can I please have a transcript of all questions and answers for each session from July 2020 to date?

If that involves too much work, could I please have a transcript of all questions answered by the Permanent Secretary and her answers.


Attached is a copy of all information requested. 

Please note, the attached transcripts were auto-generated electronically through the recording process. The transcription method may have generated some errors, for example 'Transcript 22 July 2020' - page 2, paragraph 6 states ‘covert recovery’ instead of ‘Covid recovery’.

An exemption under section 38(1)(b) of FOISA applies to all of the information you have requested. This exemption applies as it contains personal data relating to staff members.
