This is a matter for the Scottish Executive.

I understand, however, that the cataloguing of the productions lodged for the purpose of the Dunblane inquiry has recently been completed by the National Archives of Scotland. Officials from the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service are currently reviewing this material and considering what information is suitable for release either in its entirety or in an edited format. Some of the material, however, cannot be released before the end of the 100-year closure period because it contains sensitive information.
