Freedom of information refers to a member of the public’s right to access information that is held by a public authority. Legislation was introduced to ensure transparency, government accountability, education and general public protection against mismanagement and corruption. The right to Freedom of Information is set out in the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA), which gives members of the public a legal right (with some exemptions) to see information held by public authorities.
