Revision as of 10:28, 1 July 2011

The Crown Dependencies (Jersey, Guernsey, and the Isle of Man) have largely separate laws from the United Kingdom, and aren't covered by the Freedom of Information Act 2000. There are moves afoot to bring in Freedom of Information laws in the Dependencies, generally along the lines of those in the UK.

In Jersey, a draft Freedom of Information Law was introduced in 2011.

In the Isle of Man, a Freedom of Information Bill was introduced in the House of Keys in 2011, in the last sitting before the general election. It will presumably be reintroduced in the new parliament.
