Campaign for FOI Course: Why your FOI requests are being blocked - and what you can do about it.

A half day course in London on October 25 2006. Are your freedom of information requests running into a brick wall? Are you being told that the information you want is exempt or would cost too much to provide? Are you unsure whether these arguments are legitimate? This half day course in central London will help you decide whether refusals are justified or should be challenged - and help you argue your case. It will also improve your requests by sidestepping exemptions and focussing on information that is difficult for authorities to refuse. Download the course leaflet and booking form.
