Access to information

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) gives the public a right of access to information held by public authorities. It places an obligation on public authorities to adopt and maintain a publication scheme.

This requirement applies to Post Office Limited (Post Office).

The Post Office publication scheme sets out:

  • The classes of information Post Office publishes or intends to publish
  • The manner in which the information will be published
  • Whether the information is available free of charge, or upon payment of a fee
