Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) was introduced to make all levels of government more open to the public. 

The FOI Act allows public access to all types of recorded information held by public authorities. The FOI Act allows access to information regardless of when the information was created or how long it has been held, and also sets out exemptions from that right and places a number of obligations on public authorities.

You can find more information and advice about FOIs on the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) website.
