Officials ignore freedom of information

Almost one in three government departments do not yet know the deadline for the Freedom of Information Act, even though 75 per cent are confident of hitting it.

Research conducted by The Stationery Office (TSO) found that three-quarters of government departments have yet to set a budget for tackling FOI compliance, even though most rank it as more important than the 2005 e-government targets and second only behind the Data Protection Act.
