Dear AccesstoInformation,

I have been given an answer to my request about who were the consultees on the new river Awe flow regime brought about by SEPA. SCA one of the named consultees are claiming not to of been consulted.
"Eddie Palmer wrote:Can I just make it quite clear that there was NO consultation (i.e. to SCA staff, or to myself) before the announcement in late February of river releases this year."
