Can you advise when you are going to put rest of 2016 and all 2017 published Freedom Of Information requests and their responses online.

Can you advise what is the legal time is for publishing all freedom of information requests.


I acknowledge that the Comhairle has a backlog of FOI requests and responses to be published on its website.  We are considering ways in which this can be brought up to date as soon as possible, and we hope to have resolved the matter by the end of this year.

There is no legal requirement for publishing Freedom of Information Requests, but in line with guidance from the Scottish Information Commissioner the Comhairle is actively looking at ways to publish them.
