Slides used for Fiscal policy meeting 30 May 22: FOI release

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

Information requested

This is a follow up request to a previous FOI response. Your ref: 202200333877

Annex A in the above referenced FOI response mentions “slides used for a Fiscal policy meeting within the Fiscal policy team on 30 May 2022”.

Please provide the above mentioned slides.


You will wish to be aware that one extract provided in response to FOI 202200333877 referred to a session on 17 May 2022. When taking forward your follow up requests, it has come to our attention that the document was mislabelled and was prepared for the meeting on 30 May 2022. As a result, we have expanded your request for information from the 30 May 2022 session to cover slides and briefing notes, rather than just slides, to ensure the content you requested in both of your follow up requests (this request and FOI 202300338217) are covered in the one response.

Some of the information you requested is included at Annex A.

The Scottish Government has previously released some of this material to you in response to a previous FOI. This information has also been published and can be found on the Scottish Government website:

Under section 25(1) of FOISA, we do not have to give you information which is already reasonably accessible to you.

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance, exemptions under Section 30(b)(i) Free and Frank Provision of Advice of FOISA and Section 29(1)(a) – Formulation or Development of Government Policy applies to some of the information requested. The reasons why these exemptions apply is explained in Annex B of this letter.
