Scottish Executive ordered to release Dungavel documents

The Scottish Executive has been ordered to hand over some of the communications it had with the Home Office over children detained at Dungavel Immigration Removal Centre.

The ruling came from Scottish Information Commissioner Kevin Dunion, who said no "substantial" harm would be caused by disclosing the records.

His decision partly upholds an appeal by SNP MSP Christine Grahame against the Scottish Executive's decision to withhold information she sought under the Freedom of Information Act.

Documents appeal partly upheld (, 25 September 2006)
