Freedom of Information Bill to go before House of Keys

The Freedom of Information Bill will undergo its first formal reading in the House of Keys.

It introduces the concept of a legal right to access public authority information on the Isle of Man to government. 
Minister for Policy and Reform Chris Robertshaw is driving the bill - which CoMin has agreed should start in 2016 - progressing in phases over the course of two years. 
The Bill is subject to exemptions; as data won't be accessed beyond the start of October 2011, made available to Island residents only.
