Your Right to Know

This is a popular guide to the Freedom of Information Act, last updated in a second edition published in 2007.

Have you ever wanted to force open the secretive doors of government? This book provides all the tools you need.

With a new foreword by Ian Hislop, it’s also fully updated to include: new chapters on Scotland and the law in practice; tips for digging out information and new template letters; an expanded and updated directory; examples of case law that you can use in your quest for answers; and an expanded business chapter to help you get contracts, tenders and performance evaluations.

Information is born free, but everywhere is in chains. Heather Brooke has written the Information Liberation Front guide to end the politicians’ enslavement of the facts which belong to the public. Bravo.
