Friends of the Earth 'Right to Know' site goes live

Friends of the Earth’s Right to Know website went live yesterday – www.RightToKnowOnline.org

The site features an Information Request Generator, a quick and easy way to request information from government bodies. At the moment it is set up for central government bodies but in due course it will cover many more public authorities and companies, FOE’s solicitor Phil Michaels told me.

The site also features a detailed Handbook to Right to Know processes and laws and a discussion forum that people can contribute to although it focusses primarily on Friends of the Earth’s local group network.
