Response

Some of the information you have requested is available from the Scottish Government Parliament website at the following link: https://www.parliament.scot/search?qry=S6W-01975

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 listed, then please contact me again and I will send you a paper copy. For completeness attached is a copy of the accompanying spreadsheet which formed part of the answer to parliamentary question S6W-01975.

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance the Scottish Government does not hold complete information on the reason for the delays/breakdowns that would allow us to provide the data you have requested. Therefore, this is a formal notice under section 17(1) of FOISA that the Scottish Government does not have the information you have requested. However, you may wish to contact Calmac Ferries Limited at enquiries@calmac.co.uk who may be able to help you. There is also a service status page on Calmac’s website where you can access more detailed information on the current journey status of each of the routes in the CalMac network https://www.calmac.co.uk/servicestatus
