Dear Scottish Parliament,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Scottish Parliament's handling of my FOI request 'Men’s Violence Against Women and Children Meeting minutes 30 November 2020.'.

The Scottish Parliament are thanked for providing the Section 17(1) exemption however the minutes of the 2020 Annual Return confirms that the meeting took place and therefore the minutes should be available.

It is in the public interest to see the minutes of this meeting since the COVID-19 lockdown measures imposed on the Scottish public are supposed to have resulted in an increase of male violence towards females then the absence of minutes is incongruent with the priority the Scottish Parliament places on this issue.

The Scottish Parliament should also be aware of the ‘Get it Minuted Campaign' on the TheyWorkForYou website that was supported by the First Minister with the statement “The Scottish Government is fully committed to openness and transparency. I agree with the campaign’s view on the importance of ensuring that appropriate records of business are taken. When meetings involving ministers meet the criteria that are set out in the civil service guidance, appropriate records are routinely taken.”

Please provide the minutes of this meeting that records accurate details of all of the organisations that are linked to the non-MSP members of this Cross Party Group who have the opportunity to lobby MSPs and influence Scottish parliamentary business.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/m...

Yours faithfully,

SJA Grove
