New Category: FOI in Parliament

I’ve added a new category FOI in Parliament to the ‘I want to know more about…’ section. This category will list instances where the phrase ‘Freedom of Information’ or ‘Information Commissioner’ appears in Hansard (the official record of Parliament) or in the speeches made by MPs in Parliament. So for example you’ll see MPs discussing the Freedom of Information Act or even getting answers to their own FOI requests.

The listings all come from, a great new site that makes it easy for us non-politicos to keep tabs on our elected representatives and figure out what is going on in Parliament.
