Published: 23 Oct 2017

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

FOI reference: FOI/17/02121
Date received: 19 September 2017
Date responded: 17 October 2017

Information requested

I would like to submit an FOI to ask what work is carried out by Scottish Government civil servants with regards to opposition parties' conferences including media monitoring, responding to announcements and carrying out policy analysis. Further to this I would ask for internal correspondence surrounding the Spring 2017 Scottish Labour and Scottish Conservative Conferences and the 2016 UK Conservative and Labour Conferences.

Response

The answer to your question is that no work is carried out by Scottish Government civil servants in relation to opposition parties' conferences.

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance the Scottish Government does not have the information you have requested. This is a formal notice under section 17(1) of FOISA that the Scottish Government does not have the information you have requested.
