We have interpreted “merchandise” to mean items bought in order to be sold or given away for promotional purposes.
Whilst our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance we do not have information relating to cost of Social Security merchandise for the time periods specified. This is because no such items were procured during those time periods.
Social Security Scotland is committed to publishing responses to requests. The Scottish Government also publishes responses to requests. You can view the responses at http://www.gov.scot/foi-responses.
