Communication and transparency

Freedom of information, parliamentary questions and ministerial correspondence are important mechanisms through which Parliament and the public can get information out of government.

The Government is also committed to publishing lots of key information as open data.

We track and explain how well departments are responding to the requests for information, and to what extent government departments are proactively publishing important information.

Here you can explore our topical explainers, updated to reflect new government data releases, read the Whitehall Monitor annual report chapter and read the latest expert comment from the Whitehall Monitor team.
