Freedom of Information Bill 2014 - PAG Submission

E-mail Print PDF

foi Tyn snoopIn our February 2014 article we described the IOM Freedom of Information Bill 2014 as 'a typical Manx whum'.

Well, having taken a detailed look at the Draft Bill, in order to make a written *submission to Consultation process, that opinion hasn't changed!

We conclude that the Draft Bill appears to be based on the UK Freedom of Information Act 2000 (UK Act) but In key respects the Bill is weaker and more restricted than the UK Act.

Legislative Council (Part 1) - Can we afford the Luxury of LegCo?

E-mail Print PDF

eskimo

The recent move by Phil Gawne to abolish the Legislative Council received short shrift from a majority of his of his colleagues in Keys and was thrown out.

At least the proposal raised some fundamental arguments about the purpose and cost of LegCo and it is this latter aspect which we explore in more detail.

The basic salary, from April 2014, for a member of the Legislative Council is £38,771.00.

LegCo has responsibility for the consideration of draft primary legislation (Bills). It is an important role, reviewing and revising new legislation presented to it, generally from the Keys.

Freedom of Information Bill 2014 - Initial impression "A typical Manx Whum"

E-mail Print PDF

foiOne thing's for sure, journalists from The Guardian won't be clamouring to our shores if the Freedom of information Bill 2014 is made law here.

That's because only residents of the Isle of Man will have a statutory right to access information held by public authorities. And then locals may only be allowed the information if to was created after the 11th October 2011.
