Perhaps one of the most confusing areas of local government practice in recent years has been that relating to disclosure of information, whether from the public or from members. The relevant law is found in the various statutory regimes which do not always sit easily together, and where all affected need expert assistance to guide them through the maze.
All public bodies are caught between the clear and worthwhile aims of being open and transparent but also protecting confidential and sensitive information. Whether the issue is dealing with the competing requirements of disclosing information under the audit regime while preserving commercial confidentiality, dealing with the interpretations of the Information Commissioner, or deciding whether a request for information can be accepted or refused, the members of the team are able to provide the assistance necessary.
