MPs will today debate the Freedom of Information Act and the development of the act in Westminster Hall.
The debate has been prompted by the government’s response to post-legislative scrutiny of the act.
Their main points were that the£600 (central government) and £450 (other authorities) cost limit for replying to requests may be reduced and that the government wishes for individuals to contribute more to the costs of FOI tribunals.
A full summary of the of the act can be found here.
The debate will begin at 1.30pm and the liveblog will begin shortly after that on this page.
