Publication Scheme

My Freedom of Information Publication Scheme is a guide to the information that I will routinely publish.
I want to be open with the public, so this website will contain all the information that I make available.
If you have a comment about the operation of this Publication Scheme, if you would like the scheme, or any of the information it lists, in paper form or in another format (including Braille, tape, or in a language other than English), or you can't find what you are looking for, please Contact Me.

I have adopted the Information Commissioner's Model Publication Scheme.
