Freedom of Information in Scotland - update


(Ruchir Shah) #21

Hi all - see launch of call for evidence from Scottish Parliament into FOI:

Dear Ruchir,

I am contacting you in your capacity as a member of the Open Government Network to bring to your attention that the Public Audit and Post-Legislative Scrutiny Committee has today launched a call for written views to inform its post-legislative scrutiny of the Freedom of Information Act (Scotland) 2002. The Committee is keen to examine how FOI works in practice and whether the Act can be modernised or otherwise improved to increase transparency in our public services.

The Call for Views can be accessed here: https://www.parliament.scot/parliamentarybusiness/CurrentCommittees/111249.aspx

Iā€™d be grateful if you would circulate this link to other members of the Open Government Network. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any queries.

Kind regards,

Alan
