Freedom of Information Legislation

On 14 October 2014, the Freedom of Information Act 2014 ("the Act") came into effect and repealed the Freedom of Information Act, 1997 and Freedom of Information (Amendment) Act, 2003 Acts.

The new Act introduced a number of changes to the Freedom of Information (FOI) scheme and widened the range of bodies to which the FOI legislation applies to all public bodies, unless specifically exempt.
