Freedom of Information (FOI)

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 gives a general right of access to all types of information held by public authorities. It also sets out exemptions from that right and places a number of obligations on public authorities. Any person who makes a request for information from a public authority must, subject to certain exemptions, be informed whether the public authority holds that information and, in most circumstances, be supplied with it.
