Freedom of Information Handbook

Freedom of Information Handbook

by Peter Carey and Robin Hopkins

Publication Date: 31/10/2012

 
The introduction of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) revolutionised the public's access to public authority information, notably through decisions made by the Information Commissioner, Information Tribunal and courts. FOIA was amended by the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012. The third edition of this practical and authoritative handbook assimilates these changes and others. Comprehensively revised, it covers in detail: changes to the law on the disclosure of datasets by public authorities; the extension of FOIA to cover companies owned by more than one public authority; changes to the role of Information Commissioner; recent decisions of the Information Commissioner and Information Tribunal. Written by a team of leading experts in the field of freedom of information, the Freedom of Information Handbook is indispensible for public bodies' Freedom of Information Officers, legal officers and legal departments, and those advising clients with commercial or contractual interests affected by FOIA. The FOI Handbook has been adopted as the key text for those undertaking the Practitioner Certificate in Freedom of Information qualification (www.foiqualification.com)
