Hansard debate now online

The debate from the House of Commons on Wednesday is now online

Hansard 9th June Some interesting exchanges, Richard Sheppherd (Con)makes many good points relating to previous pledges made by the Government on fees.

The Government response (The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Constitutional Affairs (Mr. Christopher Leslie):

"I cannot give an undertaking that every aspect of the draft fees regulations is set in stone and will not change; it would imprudent to do so. However, the gist of the point is that the costs of freedom of information requests should be borne substantially by the public sector. That is the Government's commitment."
