Earlier in the year, the Law Commission announced it was reviewing the Official Information Act. Now they're seeking submissions through their TalkLaw website. The list of questions can be downloaded here; responses are due by 22 January 2010.

I encourage everyone who uses the Act or has an interest in freedom of information issues to respond. The OIA is a vital part of our democratic infrastructure, and its important that the Law Commission hears from its users, rather than just officials and Ministers interested in secrecy.
