Government cuts could hit FOI requests

19th July 2010

A new policy has been announced by the UK Information Commissioner's Office to crack down on public bodies that do not meet deadlines for requests for data.

Deputy commissioner Graham Smith, who was responsible for the announcement of the policy at a seminar held by the Westminster Legal Policy Forum, said that a number of public bodies "consistently" failed to achieve deadline. "We are saying we will work with you, but if there is no improvement we will issue an enforcement notice", he added.
