Work undertaken by Woodbank Marine: FOI release

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

Information requested

  1. Any work undertaken by shipbuilding advisers, Woodbank Marine, around hulls 801 and 802.
  2. Any correspondence around the work of Woodbank Marine from June 1, 2022 to date, on the same topic.


A response was due to be with you by 25 August and we would like to apologise for not meeting that deadline.

The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) 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. Where there are duplicate documents included within correspondence, we may have only provided one copy of that document.

I enclose a copy of some of the information you requested. While our aim is to provide information wherever possible; on this occasion, after reviewing the information on a line-by-line basis, we are unable to provide some of the information requested. This is due to statutory exemptions applying under FOISA. Details on what exemptions apply and why can be found in the annex attached.
