SIC Legal advice on using volunteer air assets – On 12 July 2013, Mr Cowan asked the Chief Constable of the Police Service of Scotland (Police Scotland) for legal advice about Police Scotland’s decision not to use volunteer air assets. Police Scotland responded by withholding this information under section 36(1) of FOISA, on the basis that it was subject to legal advice privilege. The Commissioner accepted this following an investigation.
