Guidance on the sex question in the forthcoming Census for Scotland
Thank you for your letter dated 4 October 2020 and in particular your positive comments on the work National Records of Scotland is doing to deliver the census.
Stakeholder engagement is vitally important to National Records of Scotland and I am pleased that you have noted our commitment to continued meaningful engagement with our stakeholders. The clarity you have provided to stakeholders to ensure that the roles and responsibilities of the Scottish Parliament, the Culture, Tourism, Europe and External Affairs Committee and National Records of Scotland are made clear is most helpful.
May I also take this opportunity to thank you and your colleagues for your ongoing support as we work to deliver a successful census in 2022.
