BBC Efforts to Restrice FOI Requests

The request was successful.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

The government is consulting on changes to the Freedom of Information Act.

Has the BBC
- made written submissions, held meetings with politicians, civil servants or any other individuals on changes to the FOIA,
- engaged consultants to prepare materials or lobby on the subject of the FOIA,
- carried out any other work regarding changes to the FOIA.

I am requesting
- the numbers of BBC staff who have worked on the FOIA consultation in the past year and the BBC departments employing those staff,
- copies of the BBC's submissions on the subject of restricting the FOIA,
- the dates of any meetings or other contacts and the minister or other officials involved,
- the cost of all consultants and contractors involved in preparing or lobbying on this issue.

Yours faithfully,

S Craig

Dear FOI Enquiries,

At the time I made Freedom of Information request RFI20151708 the BBC had not made any written submissions to the Commission, nor held meetings with politicians, civil servants or other officials in relation to the Commission and its call for evidence, nor had the BBC engaged consultants to prepare materials or lobby on the subject of the Act.

Now that a few months have passed, has the BBC
- made written submissions, held meetings with politicians, civil servants or any other individuals on
changes to the FOIA,
- engaged consultants to prepare materials or lobby on the subject of the FOIA,
- carried out any other work regarding changes to the FOIA.

I am requesting
- the numbers of BBC staff who have worked on the FOIA consultation in the past year and the
BBC departments employing those staff,
- copies of the BBC's submissions on the subject of restricting the FOIA,
- the dates of any meetings or other contacts and the minister or other officials involved,
- the cost of all consultants and contractors involved in preparing or lobbying on this issue.

Yours sincerely,

S Craig
