Dear Information Commissioner …
After recently receiving some new evidence, I have today written this letter to the Information Commissioner. It relates to a Freedom of Information request to the Department of Education for their communications with the Roman Catholic Church. Processing this request has so far taken more than 5 years and cost more than €500 in appeal fees.
FoI Is Neither Free Nor Informative
Public bodies often provide untruthful responses to Freedom of Information requests, and the Office of the Information Commissioner often doesn’t care.
