To ask the Scottish Government what review it has conducted of unpublished reports that it has commissioned using public funds and when it will present the findings.
Answered by: Joe FitzPatrick 14 November 2017
The Scottish Government does not maintain a central register of reports as there is no single definition of a report. We have not conducted a review of reports published or unpublished. We have a commitment to open government including pro-active publication where possible. Scottish Government also follows the Model Publication Scheme developed and approved by the Scottish Information Commissioner.
