Alcohol Advertising Consultation: FOI release

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

Information requested

The full and unredacted copies of all of the documents listed in our response of 5 June 2023 to your previous request dated 13 April 2023.


  1. I enclose a copy of some of the information you requested.
  2. 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 exemptions under sections 28(1)( relations within the UK), 29(1)(a) (formulation or development of policy), 30(b)(i) (free and frank provision of advice), 36(1) (confidentiality in legal proceedings) and 38(1)(b) (personal information) of FOISA apply to that information. The reasons why that exemptions apply are explained in the Annex to this letter.
  3. I have also provided a full table in readable format as Annex B, given that there was an issue of formatting in our previous response of 5 June 2023.
