freedom of information

Welcome to the Department's Freedom of Information (FoI) pages. Within these pages you will find guidance on finding information already published by the Department. You will also find out how to make a FoI request, or if the information you require is covered by another Act.

From 1st January 2005, the FoI Act granted a right of access to any person who makes a written request to a public authority for information. Subject to certain exemptions, the applicant must be told if the Department holds the information and, if it does, be supplied with the information within 20 working days. All written requests for information will be treated as FoI requests.

We hope you find the following pages informative and easy to use.
