Fortnight left to run on Freedom of Information consultation

Mon, 24 Mar 2014

There is just under two weeks left to run on the Freedom of Information bill public consultation.

The exercise has had a two week extension to allow more time for consideration of the draft Bill.

These latest proposals were formulated with openness, confidentiality and affordability in mind.

There has been pressure on Tynwald to bring in such a bill since the UK introduced their own back in 2005.

Any information released under FOI would not pre date October 2011, the start of the current government.

The consultation document is available online at and paper copies can be obtained from the Chief Secretary’s Office, Government Office, Bucks Road, Douglas.
