Ferguson Marine Due Diligence Assessment: FOI release

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

Information requested

I am seeking the full value for money/due diligence assessment on the revised estimated cost to complete each vessel approved by the Board of Ferguson Marine Port Glasgow (Holdings) Limited and submitted by the CEO to the Scottish Parliament and Ministers on 28 September 2022. This should include the detailed comparison made about the cost of completing Hull 802 and Glen Sannox against the cost of scrapping it and starting again.


The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 gives everyone the right to ask Scottish public authorities for the information they hold, subject to various provisions and exemptions. It's important to note that the right applies to information, not to documents.

While our aim is to provide you information wherever we can, on this occasion after reviewing the information on a line-by-line basis we are unable to provide you with some of the information you have requested as statutory exemptions under FOISA apply. Details on what exemptions apply and why can be found in the annex attached.
