S5W-20589: Neil Findlay (Lothian)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 13 December 2018

To ask the Scottish Government whether it plans to delay the expansion of freedom of information legislation to apply to registered social landlords (RSL) and RSL subsidiaries from the proposed date of 1 April 2019 and, if so, for what reason.

Answered by: Graeme Dey 7 January 2019

I intend to lay an order early this year to come into effect towards the end of 2019. The later than anticipated timescale is due to a number of factors including the range of issues raised during consultation as well as a focus on FOI performance during 2018.
