ICO launches ‘Tell Me More’ Campaign

In a bid to get the general public to provide their thoughts and opinions regarding the publication of information by public authorities, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has launched a new campaign called ‘Tell Me More’.

Head of Policy Delivery at the ICO, Steve Wood, said: “’Tell Me More’ is an opportunity for the public to tell us what they want to know upfront about their local council or a government department. Of course, people can make FOI requests for information – but publication schemes are about ensuring that the most requested information is already out there for all to see. I want to encourage members of the public, journalists and campaign groups to complete our survey to help ensure that we have a model publication scheme that is fit for purpose and reflects their interests.”
