Solicitors Regulation Authority

A regulator and a body voluntarily applying FOI, also called SRA

Although the Solicitors Regulation Authority is not subject to the Freedom of Information Act 2000, the Authority has adopted a transparency code under which it commits to respond to requests essentially as though they were subject to the Act, including providing for an internal review.
