Freedom of Information statistics: January to ​March 2016

This page gives Freedom of Information statistics for central government bodies from January to March 2016.



The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOI Act) and the associated Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (EIRs) came fully into force on 1 January 2005.

This bulletin presents statistics on their implementation within the central government monitored bodies for the quarterly period of January to March 2016.

Following feedback from a number of users we have changed the format of our quarterly FOI statistics bulletin. We would welcome views on the change in format alongside any other feedback on the content of this publication. Please email
