HC Deb 09 July 2002 vol 388 c895W
Tony Wright

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list the administrative manuals and internal guidance which his Department has made public as required by Part 1 of the Code of Practice on Access to Government Information; and which of these were first made available after May 1997. [45400]

Mr. Blunkett

Since the Home Office publishes considerable amounts of information, it is not possible to identify all that falls in this category without disproportionate diversion of resources and further delay. However, as work proceeds on the development of a publication scheme under the Freedom of Information Act, we intend to increase the volume of such material in accordance with recommended practice. The publication scheme will be operational in November this year and will set out the classes of information that the Home Office will publish routinely. We aim to include information from administrative manuals and internal guidance.
