The introduction of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 lead to numerous developments, particularly as a result of decisions made by the Information Commissioner, Information Tribunal and courts.

In January 2011, the Government announced a new package of measures. The third edition of this practical handbook examines these changes to provide an up-to-date, authoritative and straightforward overview of the law.

Comprehensively revised, it covers in detail:
