Freedom of Information:
The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 1997, as amended by the Freedom of Information Act 2003 establishes three new statutory rights: •a legal right for each person to access information held by public bodies •a legal right for each person to have official information relating to him/herself amended where it is incomplete, incorrect or misleading •a legal right to obtain reasons for decisions affecting oneself The Acts assert the rights of members of the public to obtain access to official information to the greatest extent possible consistent with the public interest and the right to privacy of individuals. The attached reference book has been prepared and published in accordance with the requirements of section 15 of the Acts. Its purpose is to facilitate access to official information held by the LGMA by outlining the structures and functions of the LGMA; the services provided and how they may be availed of; the classes of records held and how a request to the LGMA under the FOI Acts can be made. The attached manual does not purport to be a definitive description of all of the activities of the LGMA.
