The Scottish Government does not hold the information requested
The Scottish Government does not have the information you have asked for regarding the number of breaches of electronically monitored bail recorded since 17 May 2022 because the operation of bail, including breach of bail, is a matter for the independent courts and that information is not held by Scottish Government.
As such, I hereby provide you with formal notice under section 17(1) of FOISA that the Scottish Government does not have the information you have requested.
The Scottish Government is committed to publishing all information released in response to Freedom of Information requests. View all FOI responses at http://www.gov.scot/foi-responses.
