HC Deb 01 July 1997 vol 297 c89W
Mr. Mitchell

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster to which public bodies the Government's proposed Freedom of Information Act will apply. [5972]

Dr. David Clark

We believe that the Freedom of Information Act should apply to a substantial number of public bodies in addition to central Government departments and agencies. Details of our proposals will be set out in the forthcoming White Paper.
