MPs fear Freedom of Information restrictions

About 85 MPs have signed an early day motion expressing fears that the Government is planning to restrict information released under the Freedom of Information Act by changing the charging arrangements.

Holdthefrontpage says the motion is being promoted by and all-party group of MPs and the Campaign for Freedom of Information. The Government is considering ways in which the cost of answering FoI requests is calculated by including reading time, consideration time and consultation time.

Government departments can refuse to answer a request if the cost is more than £600 while the figure for other authorities is £450, the website says.
