Climate Change

Volume 486: debated on Thursday 15 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what the (a) name and (b) address of each regional climate change partnership is; and whether such bodies are classified as public authorities for the purposes of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. (245895)

Contact names and e-mail addresses for the Regional Climate Change Partnerships are listed on the Government's Adaptation website:

as part of the ‘Taking Action’ section.

The Regional Climate Change Partnership is not subject to the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOI Act), as it is not included in Schedule 1 of the FOI Act. It also does not appear to meet the necessary criteria, as laid out in the legislation, for a public body to be added to the FOI Act via a Section 4 Order.
