Date lodged: 19 May 2016
To ask the Scottish Government whether there was communication between it and the Scottish Information Commissioner regarding the commissioner being minded to delay announcing decisions that might be critical of ministers until after the 2016 Scottish election and, if so, whether it will publish details of this.

No, there was no such communication. I refer the member to the answer to question S5W-00130 on 31 May 2016.
