Dear Ministry of Justice,

Is it possible to obtain paper copies of a chosen Act or other Statutory Instrument under provisions of The Freedom Of Information Act? And if so; is there a charge for such a disclosure of recorded information?

Yours faithfully,

Dear Data Access & Compliance Unit,

I realise no charge can be made for an application for disclosure; If you could confirm that no charge will be be levied for providing a paper copy of an Act or other Statutory Instrument please...

As an example; if I were to request a copy of a primary legislation, would I have to pay a fee per page etc.?

Yours sincerely,

Darryl J Lee (Mr.)

Data Access & Compliance Unit, Ministry of Justice

Dear Mr Lee,
