The Information Commissioner's Office is the UK's independent authority set up to promote access to official information and to protect personal information. The ICO covers The Data Protection Act, Privacy and Electronic Communications, Freedom of Informmation Act, and Environmental and Information Regulations.

The European Parliament is often thought as something that does not directly affect our lives. Nothing could be further from the truth, much of the legislation we have in this country starts out as an EU directive which our own parliament then implements.

And now a section of more general services and places of interest.
