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

Information requested

All items of information held in relation to the briefing prepared for Constitution Secretary Angus Robertson for his meeting with French journalists on 5 October 2022, and all notes and records of this meeting/dinner.


I attach a copy of most of the information you requested in PDF format.

An exemption under section 38(1)(b) (personal information) of FOISA applies to a small amount of the information which forms this release because it contains the personal information of officials. A number of separate documents are collated at the attached release annex to fulfil your request. Explanations of the types of information are provided at the head of each annex.

This exemption is not subject to the 'public interest test', so we are not required to consider if the public interest in disclosing the information outweighs the public interest in applying the exemption.
