Join our campaign to protect the Freedom of Information Act

Stop the Tories scrapping the Freedom of Information Act (FOI) and protect your right to access government information.

The Government want to make it harder for everyone to find out what they’re really up to.

That's why Labour have launched our own review of FOI to look at how it is really working and how– far from weakening it - we can strengthen and extend it. Find out more about our review and how you can submit evidence here.

Unlike the Tories who want to water down the Act, Labour will give leading figures their chance to inform the debate on where the Act has worked well, where it could be improved and where it could be strengthened and extended (find out more here).

Labour will fight to protect FOI.

What can you do?

1. Sign our petition.

2. Submit evidence to Labour's review. Evidence opens on Tuesday 8th December and closes on Friday 8th January

3. Follow our public evidence sessions with leading figures from government, the media, academia and civil society here.
