The Burns Commission Report, a commission set up to review the Freedom of Information Act as it has developed in the 10 years since it came into force, has released its findings. The Commission generally finds that the Freedom of Information Act works well and helps to change the culture of the public sector. The report does, however, provide 21 recommendations for the ICO to consider in order to improve clarity and certainty around the operation of the Freedom of Information Act.
