S5W-08237: Richard Leonard (Central Scotland)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 17 March 2017

To ask the Scottish Government whether it will publish any minutes or notes of meetings with officials or representatives from the EU, including consuls, ambassadors and other representatives of EU member states, since the EU referendum.

Answered by: Michael Russell 29 March 2017

To maintain trust and credibility with foreign governments, we will not as a matter of course, proactively publish any minutes or notes of meetings with officials or representatives from the EU or other European Member States. We do retrospectively publish a list of Ministerial engagements on the Scottish Government website. The Scottish Government will however continue to update Parliament as appropriate on key European developments.
