The Blackstone's Guide Series delivers concise and accessible books covering the latest legislative changes and amendments. Published soon after enactment, they offer timely and expert commentary on the meaning and effects of the legislation, plus a copy of the Act itself. The guides are a cost-effective solution to key information needs and are the perfect companion for any practitioner needing to get up to speed with the latest changes.
The Freedom of Information Act 2000 came into force on 1 January 2005, creating a new statutory 'right to open government'. It has imposed new duties on public authorities regarding the disclosure and handling of information.
The third edition of this popular guide offers the most up-to-date guidance on the Act. The narrative provides a clear and comprehensive overview of the Act, combined with lucid comment and analysis on the effect of the legislation. This Guide is essential reading for those working within, or advising, public bodies; those advising clients with a personal, professional, or commercial interest in obtaining information; and those advising business clients on the accessibility of commercially sensitive information. Clear, comprehensive guidance on the state of the law and practice. Incorporates, and discusses, relevant case law, as well as the growing body of decisions from the Information Commissioner, Information Tribunal, and the Scottish Information Commissioner. Straightforward, accessible layout makes this an excellent quick reference resource. Includes a Copy of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, the Codes of Practice, and the Environmental Information Regulations
