Ticked Yes
No

2. Freedom of Information can be extended to organisations that undertake ‘functions of a public nature’. You may wish to provide comments on how you consider that RSLs undertake functions of a public nature, for example, with reference to the factors referred to earlier in the consultation paper.

Please enter comments:
Current legislation governing RSL make it clear that they are preforming a function of a public nature, many RSLs have been transferred from previous LA control. The obligations placed upon RSL implicitly mean applying a public function and as such FoI should be extended to them

3. The proposed order would be expected to come into force on 1 April 2018. Do you consider this a reasonable timescale, allowing for preparation for inclusion?
