Celebrating 17 years of FOISA

 In 2002 the Freedom of Information Act made information held by public authorities in Scotland accessible to the public as part of Scotland’s commitment to becoming more open.  Almost 17 years later, Scotland is reviewing the implementation of the Freedom of Information Act (FOISA). This year's edition will be chaired by Henry McLeish, former First Minister of Scotland.
