Freedom of Information Bill — Information held for the purpose of investigation — 27 Nov 2000

The Majority voted against weakening the exemption known as "Investigations and proceedings conducted by public authorities",[1] which excludes all information held "for the purposes of conducting a criminal investigation", so that information held "for the purposes of ascertaining the cause of an accident or for any investigation or proceedings relating to any requirement relating to the health, safety or welfare of members of the public or of persons at work or the protection of the environment" would be disclosed.[2]
