Freedom of Information Bill — Discretionary disclosures — 5 Apr 2000

The Majority voted against a change to parts of the Freedom of Information Bill relating to formulation of government policy and conduct of public affairs[1], in particular the deletion of a subsection which said, in summary:

A certificate signed by the Speaker of the House of Commons certifying that in his reasonable opinion disclosure of information held by Parliament would likely prejudice the convention of the collective responsibility of Ministers of the Crown, or inhibit the free and frank provision of advice shall be conclusive evidence of that fact.[2]
