Freedom of Information (FOI) request

What is the Freedom of Information Act?

The Freedom of Information Act is an Act of Parliament passed in 2000, which has been introduced and implemented in a rolling programme.

It has been created with the specific aims of:

  • Promoting a culture of openness and accountability amongst public authorities by providing people with rights of access to the information held by them
  • Facilitate better public understanding of how public authorities carry out their duties, why they make the decisions they do and how they spend public money

Further information on the Freedom of Information Act can be found at the Information Commissioner's Office website.
