Information not held


Your request has been handled under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.  The Act gives you the right to see information held by Scottish public authorities.  This right may only be overridden if the information you are looking for is covered by an exemption in the Act.

I can confirm that the OQPS does not hold the information you are looking for.  This is because the OQPS has not provided any services to film or television productions, and by extension has not received any revenue.

If you are dissatisfied with any aspect of our response to your request for information please send full details to:

Or write to:

The Queen’s Printer for Scotland
The Library
GD Bridge
Victoria Quay

Any complaint will be acknowledged within two working days of receipt and we will respond in full within twenty working days.

You also have the right to ask the Scottish Information Commissioner (SIC) to investigate any aspect of your complaint, though the SIC is likely to expect internal complaints procedures to have been exhausted before beginning his investigation.

If I can be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely,

On behalf of OQPS
