FOI round-up

Martin Rosenbaum | 19:55 UK time, Friday, 26 January 2007

Some interesting FOI developments this week:

• The journalism trade paper Press Gazette is continuing its campaign against the government’s plans to restrict FOI, this week with a look at the stance of broadcasters, including the BBC.

Jack Straw (who is not one of the Cabinet’s FOI enthusiasts) seized another opportunity yesterday to bash the BBC over freedom of information. He takes the same line in his private conversations with journalists.

• The Today programme this morning ran an important story from its reporter Sanchia Berg on failure to tackle corruption in prisons, based on documents obtained using FOI.
