foi being used

Already the FOI act is being used to get to the truth out of Government, including it’s ministers who normally hide behind walls of obfuscation and prevarication. The report on Beagle 2, which damned the complete lack of any project management, has been forced into the publuc domain by use of FOI. Also, oponents of the Edinbane wind farm, on the Isle of Skye, have invoked the FOI to get access to AMEC’s entire stock of documents on the project. It was so onerous upon AMEC to copy these documents that they just sent the originals. It would seem obvious that they weren’t prepared for such a move, that they actually gave away the original documents.
