    Hi

    I haven’t read it all but it would appear no.

    Can you imagine how local government in Spain would cope with having to supply (the correct) information from a request within 20 working days.?

    regards

    Paul

    Freedom of information is a public freedom stated in art 20.d of th Spanish Constitution of 1978 with the highest standards of judicial proteccion as being included in the ” super-guaranteed” seccion primera, capítulo segundo, titulo primero .

    It has not been a development of this in an specific act so far but there are plenty of COnstitutional Court´s decissions regaridng this: this Tribunal is the author of the definitions, characterisitcs, features, types of FUndamental Rights and Public Liberties in Spain.

    I love Constitutional Law! Actually doing my PHD on COnstitutional Law.

    Thank you p800aul and Maria for your replies and your comments are duly noted.
    With such voluminous information, my tiny brain has decided that any action I was thinking of taking is probably just not worth the candle …or a light!

    But hey, won’t I have a lot to talk about at the next dinner party I get invited to… d’ya think ?
