Freedom of Information
The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 gives a general right of access to all types of recorded information held by public authorities, sets out exemptions to that right and places a number of related obligations on public authorities, particularly in relation to Records Management and Publication Schemes.
As of 1 January 2005, people have had the right to make a request for information and be informed whether or not the public authority holds that information and, subject to various statutory exemptions, be supplied with that information.
Requests for information can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org or to the following address:-
