A lot of information about the Inn is already available on our website. We will try to provide as much additional information as possible, but please note, the Freedom of Information Act and Environmental Information Regulations relate only to information produced by the Under Treasurer of the Middle Temple in their capacity as a local authority and do not extend to information generated by the Honourable Society of the Middle Temple as a private body.
The Publication Scheme
Under the Freedom of Information Act the Inn is required to adopt a Model Publication Scheme produced by the Information Commissioner. This provides information on what information public authorities are committed to publishing routinely, making the information quickly and easily available to the public. The Inn has adopted the Information Commissioner’s Model Publication Scheme for bodies only covered for certain information [bodies which are partly within scope of the Act]. This can be viewed here. Please bear in mind that the scheme covers only information about the functions for which the Inn is a public authority.
Information outside the scope of the Act is disclosed at our discretion except where otherwise required by law.
Guide to information
In addition the Inn is required to produce a “guide to information” which provides details of the information it will routinely make available, how the information can be accessed, and whether or not a charge will be made for it. For practical purposes, the Inn has chosen to include information available under the EIR together with information available under FOIA in this guide.
There are a number of ways you can obtain information from the Inn. Some is released proactively and can be accessed on this website, while other categories of information are only available on request.
An updated version of the Inn’s Guide to information is currently being produced and will be uploaded to the website shortly. In the meantime please contact us using the details provided here with any questions or requests for information that you have.
