Blair to drop fees for access to data

The Guardian 21st Sept

Yet more twists and turns in the fees debate, will post more information when I get it, I'll try and contact the DCA. The key is whether the £600 free limit will be set for all public authorities. If you have any information related to fees: drop me a line to: steve_wood62@hotmail.com

"Tony Blair has agreed to scrap most of the fees levied for making use of the Freedom of Information Act, as part of an effort to regain disillusioned liberal voters at the election."

"It is expected that Lord Falconer, the constitutional affairs secretary, will announce that charges for applications for information under the Freedom of Information Act will not be levied so long as the cost of gathering the information does not exceed £600."
