|Nicola Sturgeon, wanting to|
avoid a fight on two fronts?
- That the Bill does not address the main problem of FOI - the increasing use of non-public bodies (private contractors, housing associations, voluntary sector bodies and arms-length organisations - ALEOs) to deliver public services, resulting in the removal of FOI rights from the public.
- How the law should ensure that such bodies are automatically added.
- The attempted introduction of a further ‘absolute’ (ie non-challengeable) exemption covering communications with the monarch or the heir to the throne.
