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 new edition of this popular Blackstone's Guide provides a comprehensive overview of the Act, combined with comment and analysis on the effect of the legislation. It incorporates and discusses the case law and decisions emerging from the Information Commissioner, Information Tribunal/First-tier Tribunal, and the High Court, including Her Majesty's Treasury v ICO, British Union for the Abolition of Anti Vivisection v Home Office and ICO, and Home Office and MOJ v ICO, as well as relevant decisions of the Scottish Information Commissioner. It also includes analysis of the replacement of the Information Tribunal by the First-tier Tribunal (General Regulatory Chamber) and the Upper Tribunal. Up-to-date with all changes since the publication of the previous edition, and containing a fully updated copy of the Act, this Blackstone's Guide is an essential purchase for all those involved in receiving requests for access under the Act.
