Information charge plan angers MPs

Guardian 10th JuneThere was a debate in Parliament yesterday about the FOI fees.

The following question was also answered:

Llew Smith: To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Department for Constitutional Affairs what decisions he has reached on the appropriate charging regime for requests for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. [175078]

Mr. Leslie: The Government published draft Freedom of Information fees regulations in 2000. No decision has been taken to alter these. An advisory group comprising of internal and external stakeholders is looking at options and is due to report before summer recess and a decision will be made before October. Final regulations will be brought forward by the Government in time for being in effect on 1 January 2005.
