Pledge “foivisit”

"I will visit my MP in person to explain why I'm concerned about the possible changes to FOI rules but only if 2 other people in my constituency will come with me."

Deadline to sign up by: 1st March 2007
15 people signed up, successful in 2 places

Country: United Kingdom

More details
According to my sums, the total cost imposed by FOI on central government departments is a full 24.9 seconds of yearly public expenditure. I think that's good a reasonable price to pay, and I'd like to tell me MP as much directly. Please sign up to either come with me, or to organise a trip to see your own MP.

Comments on this pledge

  • Count me in, though that means a visit to Malcolm Rifkind - what fun!
  • A link to the Department for Constitutional Affairs proposals:

    "Draft Freedom of Information and Data Protection (Appropriate Limit and Fees) Regulations 2007"
  • I would like to partecipate but can't this period of time. Is there any news?
  • I would like to participate too, but no-one else who has voted has made it clear which constituencies they live in, so the pledge is broken. I am fairly sure it hasn't succeeded in London, though I can't be sure since I don't know where other Londoners live.

    Come on! This is a really important issue. We must be able to organise it better than this.

    I am in Hackney North & Stoke Newington if anyone else is. I will try that.

    Francis Davey, 13 years ago. Abusive? Report it!
