Dear Scottish Government,

Please provide by freedom of information emails and correspondence between the Justice Minister, ministers, civil servants and special advisors discussing the selection and appointment of the 4 person body formed as a working group into parades and public processions. They are Dominic Bryan, Lorraine Gillies, Graham Boyak and Michael Hamilton.
Also include the emails and correspondence between the working group members before and after appointment to the Justice Minister, ministers, civil servants and special advisors.
I want to know who proposed these individuals to form the group and the reasons why they were selected.

Lastly we're these posts advertised externally for other members of the public to apply.

Yours faithfully,

Paul Temple

Scottish Government
