A day of freedom of information events in the Scottish Parliament

Wednesday 2 November 2011


For MSPs, researchers and staff
Sponsored by Jackie Baillie MSP

On Wednesday 2 November 2011 staff from the Commissioner's office will be on hand in the Scottish Parliament to discuss any issue related to freedom of information, so whether you have a current issue you want to explore, or just simply want to find out more, contact us to reserve your place!

The two events which will be taking place are:

Make the Most of Your Right to Know

18:00-19:30, Committee Room 5

Join Scottish Information Commissioner Kevin Dunion and Jackie Baillie MSP for an overview of Freedom of Information (FOI) in Scotland, and advice on how MSPs, researchers and staff can get the most from the FOI 'right to know'.  We'll also hear from members of the public whose own FOI use - supported by their MSP - has contributed to significant changes in public policy. 

See below for registration details.


Freedom of Information Surgery

10:00-17:00, Room TG 24

Discuss any issue relating to FOI with an experienced advisor from the Scottish Information Commissioner's team.  From how to frame a request to help you receive the information you need, to how best to use FOI to support your constituents.  

Contact us below to book a slot in advance, or simply drop-in on the day. 


Registration Details

To book a place on either session, simply telephone us on 01334 464610, or email us at, with your name, contact telephone number, and details of the particular event(s) that you'd like to attend.


N.B.  These events are open to MSPs, their researchers and staff, along with staff from the Scottish Parliament.  Both sessions will take place inside the Scottish Parliament building, so all participants must ensure that they have the appropriate Parliamentary security clearances in place before attending.
