Well, more future than current really.  Events that are likely to require updates to FOIwiki and WhatDoTheyKnow and other FOI related news.

Well done article that. I'll make sure to use it wseily.
 
 
==Ongoing==
 
 
 
=== Government Spending Review - abolition of quangos ===
 
 
 
* A number of non-departmental government bodies / quangos have been named as being up for abolition, merger or absorption into parent departments, as part of the Coalition Government's Spending Review, due this autumn
 
 
 
* The list of quangos up for review is still being compiled. 
 
 
 
* Main article:  [[Bonfire of the quangos]]
 
 
 
===NHS community services divestment===
 
 
 
: ''Main article: [[NHS community services divestment]]
 
 
 
[[Primary care trust]]s are being required by DH to divest themselves of their in-house community services.  In most cases, this is either to existing or newly formed [[National Health Service trust]]s or [[NHS foundation trust]]s.  In "over 60" cases, though, services look like being provided by a "Social Enterprise", which appears to mean a Community Interest Company.  The current proposal is to make them subject to the FOI Act.
