Annual report on FOI in central government 2006

The Ministry of Justice has published the Annual Report on the FOI Act for 2006 which includes the statistics on the performance of central government in handling requests.

Foreword by Lord Falconer of Thoroton:
"It has been more than 2 years since the Freedom of Information Act came into force bringing about hugely significant reform that has made government and public authorities more open than ever before. At the core of Freedom of Information is the desire to bring about better government. From an increasingly beneficial impact on decision making to instilling a culture of openness and routine publication, a far greater amount of information is now more accessible than ever known before. The Act has had a positive effect on making the government and public authorities more accountable to the people they are there to serve."
