CalMac subject to FoI Act

The Lord's Day Observance Society formally asked Caledonian MacBrayne for a copy of their Counsel's Opinion which stated that the company were 'breaking the law by not providing Sunday ferries from Stornoway to Ullapool.' The LDOS stated: "The Scottish Information Commissioner has confirmed that, as a company 'wholly owned by the Scottish ministers,' Caledonian MacBrayne is a 'Scottish public authority' and is therefore 'fully subject to the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002'.
