S5W-21285: Mark Griffin (Central Scotland)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 29 January 2019

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-20910 by Shirley-Anne Somerville on 23 January 2019, whether it will provide further details regarding for what reason it considers that this information cannot be made public, and what information it can provide regarding how many items listed in all Social Security Programme Director Progress Reports were given a red RAG status.

Answered by: Shirley-Anne Somerville 8 February 2019

I refer the member to the answer to question S5W-20910 on 23 January 2019. The Programme Board Dashboards are part of routine reporting, and as such any RAG statuses are provided for internal discussion and not made public, on the grounds that doing so would inhibit substantially the free and frank exchange of views for the purposes of deliberation. The Programme Director’s Update is used to enable critical discussion that in turn supports the delivery of social security for Scotland.
