Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act 1982 gives people the right to access information held by Ministers, state government departments, local councils, public hospitals, most semi-government agencies and statutory authorities.

Our Freedom of Information Info Sheet explains how to make a request, and our Part II Statement tells you what types of documents we have. You can also use our Freedom of Information Request Form to submit your request.
