I am scheduled to appear in front of the Oireachtas Committee on Finance and Public Expenditure & Reform on February 6 at 11.30am to speak about the FOI draft bill. You can watch proceedings here from Committee Room 4. (unless they change rooms!)
As ever we will be trying to represent the views of other FOI practitioners and our loyal readers who have donated to our effort over the years. We will be strongly opposing plans to retain upfront fees.
