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 1 July 2015 to 30 September 2015.
This is the first bulletin produced by the Cabinet Office following the transfer of Freedom of Information policy. These statistics have not been formally assessed for compliance with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics since their transfer from the Ministry of Justice. The UK Statistics Authority is planning to assess the statistics for compliance with the Code of Practice in the near future.
Cabinet Office official statistics are governed by the standards set out by the UK Statistics Authority in their code of practice. Find out more about the Cabinet Office statistics standards and policies.
