Ms Fox

I refer to your previous request for a copy of the Hughes Report of the
Inquiry into Children's Homes and Hostels and your recent request for advice as to who owns the copyright. We have now sought further advice
and have been advised that “Copyright does not prevent information being disclosed under the Freedom of Information Act”. As such we will copy the
report you requested and send it to you in hard copy, Can you therefore please forward your mailing address.

I must advise you however that “copyright will still apply to the information once it has been disclosed under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and that the person who receives the information under FOIA is
still obliged, by law, to respect the rights of the copyright owner. If they do not, the copyright owner can seek damages or an injunction in the same way as they could for any infringement of copyright
