Question

Response

What information is held on the political affiliation of board members and senior staff within your organisation

Information is already publicly available via our website here: Registers of interest | WICS.

The current annual cost of press and media handling for your organisation

We do not incur press or media handling costs specifically.

We have various subscriptions in place which we could provide annual costs for. However, this is not associated with press and media handling or salary costs and would therefore be a new request.

Our annual report and accounts are available on our website for your perusal: Annual reports and financial statements | WICS.

The total number of personnel employed to handle press and media for your organisation

We do not have any personnel employed to specifically handle press and media. Our central office team is responsible for dealing with any enquiries we receive from the general public and all other stakeholders. This includes enquiries received from members of the press and media and managing subscriptions.

What guidelines have been issued to your organisation by the Scottish Government on press releases and media

We have not had any specific guidance issued to us by the Scottish Government on press and media.
