Possible extension of FoI in Scotland

The Scottish Government has launched a consultation on a possible extension of the coverage of Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) to specified bodies.

This follows on from the Scottish Ministers' decision to consult with certain bodies on the extension of FOISA.

This consultation, and all other Scottish Government consultation exercises, can be viewed online on the consultation web pages of the Scottish Government website at www.scotland.gov.uk/consultations.

Consultation commenced on 28 July 2010 and will run for 14 weeks. Responses should be received by 02 November 2010.
