10 Downing St press briefing 8 July 2004

10 Downing Street website

Not sure why this question was asked or if there is any significant context.....

"Asked if the Government was planning to go ahead with the various measures on freedom of information, the Prime Minister's Official Spokesman (PMOS) said yes. Implementation of the Act was due to begin next year. Asked if additional safeguards had been built into the start date, the PMOS said no. It was not necessary to do so. The Act would be implemented across Whitehall. Asked which Minister had responsibility for the Freedom of Information Act, the PMOS said that it was Lord Falconer."
