Speaking after his amendments to restore freedom of information access were passed this afternoon, Scottish Greens MSP Ross Greer said:
“I'm grateful that my amendments were passed unanimously, ensuring that the public, journalists and elected representatives have access to as much information as possible during this crisis. Confidence in government is critical right now but it depends on transparency.
"Restricting Freedom of Information was wrong and unnecessary, reflected but the fact that no other country in Europe has taken this step. The Greens are glad to have brought Scotland back in line with common standards of openness and transparency."
