A central tenet of my Department's commitment to transparency and accountability is the public disclosure of all non-personal Freedom of Information requests.

The policy is to publish all non-personal Freedom of Information requests and the responses on the Department's website. Where records pertaining to the request exist, the associated schedule of records is also published. Records that have been granted or part-granted are made available to the public on request.

The most recent update on the Department’s website includes all requests up to the end of August 2019.
