ICO discloses "Line to Take" policy documents

The Information Commissioner's Office has recently disclosed all of its "Lines to Take" policy documents which set out how the ICO approaches certain types of Freedom of Information complaints. The disclosure follows a request by Alex Skene, a volunteer who helps maintain the WhatDoTheyKnow.com website.

There are 177 documents in total, which were disclosed in 6 PDF files. However, Alex has helpfully made them available in a more structured, searchable and easier to use manner via the FOI wiki he hosts:


Relevant LTTs can also be accessed via their associated FOI Act exemption page, eg http://foiwiki.com/foiwiki/index.php/Section41.

The documents are a fantastic resource for FOI requesters and public authorities alike.
