    Correct, that's the key to it.

    In addition to the bodies listed in the Act, with effect from 1 September 2013 the definition of a public authority now also covers companies which are wholly owned:
    by the Crown;
    by the wider public sector; or
    by both the Crown and the wider public sector.


    If RBS is wholly owned by the British Government (who acts on behalf of the Crown) then it is a "public authority" subject to FOI act.

    So is RBS wholly owned by the Government?

    A quick google tells me that the gov owns 80% of it only. It is still listed in the stock market as a tradable company which would not be possible if the gov owned all the shares.

    He hasn't got one. His read something somewhere and has decide to fart it on to the forum without thinking again so others have to clean the thread up again.
