I've commented previously that at about 5000 requests for non-personal information in the last year (a significant increase) use of the FOI act for accountability or participation in government purposes at the national level is pathetically low. Right to Know may change this by removing some of the mystique. It's the first "demand side" initiative in decades.
Three of the requests during a pre-launch trial in recent weeks are from me.
Agencies already feeling under pressure may not appreciate this boost for the exercise of information access rights. But as the Prime Minister remarked back in 2010, "let the sun shine in."
