FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT
2000
It provides clear statutory rights for any member of the public to apply for access to information held by bodies across the public sector, together with a strong enforcement regime. A new Information Commissioner's Office and an Information Tribunal, with wide powers to enforce the rights created, were established by the Act, along with a duty imposed on public authorities to adopt a scheme for the publication of information. The legislation applies to a wide range of public authorities, including parliament, government departments, local authorities and other entities in England, Northern Ireland and Wales.
