DCA Consultation on Freedom of Information Regulations

The DCA has issued its consultation on the draft regulations for the Freedom of Infomation Regulations. The first consultation period has ended, so this is a consultation for a subsequent paper. See extract below:

The Government has drafted amended FOI fees regulations which will allow public authorities to take into account more comprehensively the work involved in dealing with an FOI request. This consultation asks for views on the draft Regulations. The initial consultation period closed on 8 March 2007. A supplementary paper opened a second period of consultation on 29 March 2007 inviting views on the principle of amending the 2004 Regulations and also any further views on the draft Regulations themselves as set out in the consultation paper of 14 December 2006.
