This from Heather at Your Right to Know
The petition is sponsored by Barry Winetrobe at the Centre for Law at Napier
University and he’s hoping that
with enough supporters, this bill will be rejected.
Please sign up and spread the word to colleagues etc, via your websites,
blogs, email groups etc.
You can write to your MP to oppose the Government’s proposed changes to the
fees regulations of the Freedom of Information Act at their postal address:
House of Commons, London SW1A 0AA or by using
the WriteToThem website – which will help you identify your MP and send
them a message for free.
An Early Day Motion opposing
the changes has been promoted by an all-party coalition of MPs – Tony
Wright (Lab), Alan Beith (Lib Dem), Dominic Grieve (Con), Richard Shepherd
(Con), Mark Fisher (Lab) and Simon Hughes (Lib Dem). Ask your MP to sign EDM
845 on Freedom of Information.
If your MP has already signed the EDM you can still write and tell them of
your concern. Public pressure is the only way to stop these changes becoming
