Question 145: To ask the Minister for Finance the number of applications he has received to date in 2004 under the Freedom of Information Act; the way in which this compares with the same periods in 2002 and 2003; if, in view of the huge decrease in the number of applications, he will review the restrictions imposed on the operation of the Freedom of Information Act 1997; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

The information requested by the Deputy is as follows:

Number of FOI requests received at 19 November 2002 Number of FOI requests received at 19 November 2003 Number of FOI requests received at 19 November 2004
280 296 73

I have no plans to review amendments made to the Freedom of Information Act 1997.
