Get Ready for FOI

18 June 2003: Government Computing

Don't moan about the Freedom of Information Act if you've not yet prepared for it, says a UK Government minister

Public sector organisations need to appoint senior personnel to co-ordinate their efforts to comply with the Freedom of Information Act (FoI), a minister from the new Department for Constitutional Affairs has said.

Lord Filkin said they also need to invest in systems to ensure they can meet the requirements of the Act when it comes into force at the beginning of 2005. He was speaking on 17 June 2003 at a conference on the issue organised by BT.
