69 freedom of information applications

Envinromental journalist Rob Edwards has placed an overview of the 69 Foi requests he has made since January 2005 and the outcomes - highlighting slow reponses and delays at both the UK and Scottish Information Commissioner's Offices. Whilst illustrating issues of delay it is also interesting to note way FOI requests can be used to build up a body of knowledge about an issue and how requests have to sent to many public bodies - something which the proposed changes to the fees regime could make too costly.
