§ Lord Lester of Herne Hill
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What measures are in place to prevent the excessive classification of official documents as not appropriate for public disclosure. (HL2086)
§ Lord Bach
Clear guidance is available on the use of protective markings for the administrative classification of official documents. However, such classifications are not a factor which will be taken into account when considering disclosure of information under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Bill.
