Bill 68

My feeds tell me that, "Freedom of Information (Amendment) Bill 2010-11" was read in the Commons with Hansard recording the event.

The exchange recorded is well worth the read,

"Tom Brake (Carshalton and Wallington) (LD): I beg to move,

That leave be given to bring in a Bill to amend the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to remove provisions permitting Ministers to overrule decisions of the Information Commissioner and Information Tribunal; to limit the time allowed for public authorities to respond to requests involving consideration of the public interest; to amend the definition of public authorities; and for connected purposes.


More in the Hansard link.
