Rudd Government's first not the best year for FOI applicants.

Haven't read the Federal Government's Annual Report 2007-2008 on the operation of the Freedom of Information Act released yesterday but The Australian says requests were down (25%), delays were up (proportion of applications taking more than three months to process doubled), and the number of instances where documents were released in full fell from 80.6% to 71.4%. A closer look may reveal some good news as well..
