FOI Letter

FOI Letter

by Margo Kingston

On May 1 I sought the list of Press Gally members from the Parliamentary Liaison office after the Press Gallery Committee advised that it was private

My FOI was successful. Here is the letter granting access to the information, free of charge, and the list. I’d like to thank the PLO for their timely, straightforward approach to my FOI.

Press Gallery president David Speers recently advised me by tweet that the gallery will launch a website next month.
