Public Law

Last week, the Scottish Government published its long-awaited final report in its most recent consultation, commenced in December 2017, on extending the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) to Scottish housing associations (otherwise known as registered social landlords or RSLs).

Subject to Parliamentary approval, the draft order appended to the final report provides for an implementation date of 11 November 2019.
