The new Freedom of Information Act 2014 was enacted on 14 October 2014. It replaces the FOI Acts of 1997 and 2003.
Since then the Act has encompassed more public bodies.
One of it’s key provisions is that there is no longer a fee payable when an FOI request is being made.
The Freedom of Information legislation establishes three statutory rights:
- A legal right for each person to access information held by public bodies
- A legal right for each person to have official information relating to him/her amended where it is incomplete, incorrect or misleading.
- A legal right to obtain reasons for decisions affecting oneself.
