HC Deb 30 November 1989 vol 162 c432W
Mr. Fisher

To ask the Prime Minister if she has plans to change the current public right of access to official information; and if she will make a statement.

The Prime Minister

No. The policy remains to make as much information available as possible while preserving the confidentiality essential to the effective working of the Government. I continue to think that a statutory general public right of access to official information is inappropriate for our system of Government.
