Isle of Man: FoI on the way?

Isle of Man today 09 March
"A Freedom of information law could be on the way, a government minister has confirmed. Local Government and the Environment Minister John Rimington said a working party is reviewing how well a code of practice on allowing access to government information is working and introducing a law, possibly similar to the UK Freedom of Information Act which came into force in January, may be an option. Mr Rimington confirmed the code of practice, introduced in 1996 following the recommendations of a Tynwald select committee, is being reviewed in light of the Mount Murray investigation and UK law change."
