Dear Scottish Government,

Can you provide any further details as to how those figures were sourced and where i may attain that particular data ?

Dear David

It is not the role of the Scottish Government to investigate how these
figures were sourced.  The article to which you made reference to (link
below) does state that the Scottish Liberal Democrats obtained the figures

[1]https://news.stv.tv/politics/nearly-1500...
Therefore, you will need to contact the Scottish Liberal Democrats
directly.  Here is a link on how to do so:  [2]Contact the Scottish
Liberal Democrats - Scottish Liberal Democrats (scotlibdems.org.uk)

Our earlier response was to simply confirm that the Scottish Liberal
Democrats did not obtain these figures from the Scottish Government.
