That's the question posed by Juan Watterson in the Keys (01.02.11)

Here's the Chief Minister's written answer:

"Progress continues to be made in bringing forward a Freedom of Information Bill, for which Government remains committed to its introduction into the branches during the current legislative session. It is acknowledged that progress on the Bill has been slower than originally anticipated. I can confirm that the responses to the consultation exercise, some of which have been quite detailed, have been collated and work continues to consider the comments received, and to consider whether there should be changes made to the proposed legislation, for final consideration by the Council of Ministers prior to the Bill being introduced into the House".

We've been getting a similar message for the last 4 years Mr Brown!

Real commitment eh?
