Freedom of Information
DEPARTMENT OF CULTURE, ARTS & LEISURE PUBLICATIONS
The Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure is a transparent and open organisation and it publishes information about what it does on this website which can be assessed through the search facility on the home page.
The Information Commissioner, who is responsible for monitoring and enforcing compliance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000, has drawn up a Model Publication Scheme for all public sector organisations, which we have decided to adopt and formally commit to. The Commissioner has also published a Definition Document for government departments which sets out in some detail what his minimum expectations are as far as we are concerned.
Much of the information we make routinely available can be accessed through our website by using the search facility, or the sections below. This information is updated on a regular basis. If you cannot find information and we have indicated in the definition document that the information is routinely available this may be because the information cannot be loaded onto our website. In such circumstances please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for the information.
