This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Scottish Government,

Please provide details of any analysis undertaken by the Scottish Government with regard to the work and experiences of those serving on the Gender Recognition Panel (GRP).

Please provide all information held by the Scottish Government which considers whether the GRP has refused applications due to concerns about the applicant's motivation and/or risk to others and whether the need to apply to the GRP deters applications from people whose motivation and/or risk to others would be of concern.

This may include but not be limited to:

* material submitted to the Scottish Government by the UK government or by the GRP
* material submitted to the Scottish Government by other organisations or individuals
* material identified by the Scottish Government from any source
* any relevant analysis undertaken by or provided to the Scottish Government.

Please could you also confirm whether the Scottish Government has raised this issue with the GRP.

Yours faithfully,

L Mackenzie

Scottish Government
