WhatDoTheyKnow ???

To help you find out inside information about the UK Government and UK public bodies.

WhatDoTheyKnow helps people access information about central government, local government, Parliament, the NHS, the armed forces, state funded schools and universities and other public authorities.

You can also use the site to find out information that regulators hold about businesses, charities and other organisations.

You choose the public authority that you would like information from, then write a brief note describing what you want to know. We then send your request to the public authority. Any response received is automatically published on the website for you and anyone else to find and read.

You pay taxes, and then government does things with the money. All sorts of things that affect your life, from health care through to national defence. Some it does badly, some it does well. The more we find out about how government works, the better able we are to make suggestions to improve the things that are done badly, and to celebrate the things that are done well. Some people also use the site for research.

Under Freedom of Information (FOI) law, they have to respond. The response will either contain the information you want, or give a valid legal reason why it has not been provided.
