Public Sector Information Regulations

Volume 456: debated on Wednesday 31 January 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what steps the Government are taking to increase awareness in the public sector of the re-use of public sector information regulations. (117632)

I have been asked to reply.

Ministerial responsibility for the re-use of public sector information now rests with ministers in the Department for Constitutional Affairs. The Office of Public Sector Information (OPSI) has participated in a series of workshops, conferences, seminars and briefings for public sector organisations across the United Kingdom. OPSI has also issued a wide range of guidance material in order to inform public sector organisations of their responsibilities under the regulations on the re-use of public sector information. The process of providing advice and support to public sector organisations continues.
