To consider a revised policy
The Cabinet had before it a * report of the Group Manager for Performance, Governance and Data Security providing an update to the existing policy to reflect current best practice and an increase in the scope of the Environmental Information Regulations (EIR).
She outlined the contents of the report stating that since the last review the scope of the Environmental Information Regulations had been expanded by case law, it was expected that the revision to the policy would result in more requests for information being treated under the EIR which was not subject to the same time limitations as Freedom of Information requests.
RESOLVED that the revised Freedom of Information and Environmental Information Regulations Policy be approved.
(Proposed by the Chairman)
