Date responded: 3 August 2017
The number of FOI requests made by the BBC each year since the SNP first came to power.
The information you requested for the period from 1 January 2017 to the date of your request is set out in the following table:
|Year||Number of FOI requests from the BBC|
While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance the Scottish Government does not have the information you have requested for the period from 4 May to 31 December 2007 because the system we use for recording and monitoring FOI requests was introduced from 1 January 2008. The database we used before that date is obsolete and is no longer accessible. This is a formal notice under section 17(1) of FOISA that the Scottish Government does not have this part of 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
