Letter to Lord Falconer on the new edition of the FOI code of practice

The Campaign has expressed concern at a new edition of the code of practice issued by the government under section 45 of the FOI Act, which it says contravenes two ministerial commitments to Parliament. These deal with  the time limits for responding to requests and the circumstances in which authorities should accept information in confidence. The Campaign has written to Lord Falconer, the Secretary of State for Constitutional Affairs, asking him to amend the code so that it complies with these commitments.
