This information is exempt under Section 12 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002; excessive cost. Currently we do not specifically record this information therefore it would involve manual searching of our systems against every application.
A link to monitoring statements which we report to committee each quarter can be found here (pg 11; CommsS705-708).This information indicates the number of people who have chosen each option on their Support Plans within that quarter.
