At least, it probably won’t be for long, if the Department for Constitutional Affairs gets its way.

“An about-turn on the newly implemented Freedom of Information Act has been prompted by a series of embarrassing revelations about the inner workings of government. The cost of responding to requests has also proved so expensive for civil servants to administer that a charge for information is being seen as the only alternative.”

So there you go. Freedom of Information is too expensive, and you might find out things that you shouldn’t.
