Internal Markets Act guidance

We're waiting for Ally Tibbitt to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Scottish Government,

Please treat this email as a Freedom of Information Request.

My understanding is that the Internal Markets Act came into force in late 2021.

1. Please could you supply me with all correspondence held by the Scottish Government from the UK Government that sets out implementation, guidance and exemption application procedures required by the Act, as set out here: https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/202...

2. Please could you confirm the earliest possible date that the Scottish Government was able to seek additional exclusions from IMA?

3. Please could you confirm how many times Scottish Ministers have sought further exemptions from the IMA subsequently, summarise what these exemptions were for, and please could you provide all correspondence and related records that cover exchanges between Scottish Ministers and UK Government Ministers that relates to these exemptions?

Yours faithfully,

Ally Tibbitt

Scottish Government
