Thanks Niamh

Unfortunately I can’t make this. I may send some thoughts electronically.

Thanks Bruce that would be great. Thanks for reminder, I should have added anyone is welcome to do the same:

We welcome comments and reflections from anyone who wishes to contribute or share experiences, whether you were involved a little or not at all over the last year developing the Action Plan. Please email thoughts or contact us at to arrange a time to chat over phone.

This feedback will feed into a learning report which we will publish.


Hi Niamh

Still trying to find some time time to look at research on OpenGovernment that’s relevant to Scotland’s AP. (I have a load of papers ready to read…)

I’ve just looked at the times: if I can leave about 13:15, so I’m back at Napier by 14:00, then I can come. (GoogleMaps suggests 20 minutes but I think it assumes I’m Geraint Thomas and a carbon-fibre speed-beast - and no potholes or traffic lights.)

Will stop rambling here…


Brilliant, see you then. The workshop itself should be finishing up by then - Lunch is from 1/1.15 so you won’t miss any of the workshop, and can take a sandwich for the road.
