The Freedom of Information Act gives individuals rights to have information about how public bodies function and make decisions.
Accessing Public Information
Freedom of Information Act
From January 2005, The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOI) gives any person a general right of access to all types of recorded information held by public authorities. The Act sets out exemptions from that right and places a number of obligations on those authorities. The aim of FOI is to promote greater openness in public authorities; about operational decisions and how public money is used. When a person requests a piece of information from an authority, the authority will have a duty to disclose that information, if it holds it and it is not subject to any legally defined exemptions.
