Scottish Government's Children's Hearings Unit response to E. Jackson and Alex Cole-Hamilton's email: FOI release

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

Information requested

The response from the Scottish government's Children's Hearings Unit to the email of 04 November 2022 from E Jackson and Alex Cole-Hamilton's email of 02 February 2023.


I enclose a copy of some of the information you have requested – a letter from Clare Haughey MSP, then Minister for Children and Young People, to Mr Cole-Hamilton dated 7 March 2023. This was not captured under the terms of your original request as it is not correspondence between the Scottish Government Children's Hearing Unit and Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP or Children’s Hearings Scotland.

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance the Scottish Government does not have the information you have requested regarding a response or responses to Mr Jackson’s email of 4 November. This may be because no responses were issued, or because it was responded to by phone call as requested by Mr Jackson.
