What is the freedom of information act?

Question asked by: mrquestion

Asked on: 19 Jan 2010

The freedom of information act is a piece of legislation in the UK that allows people to make requests citing that act as the reason why they should be allowed access to the particular data that they ask for.

Generally Western societies are getting more and more open about what information and data the public can access if they want it (apart from salaries of people at the BBC despite it being their money that pays for it apparently!)
