I beg to move amendment No. 2, in clause 2, page 1, line 15, at end insert—

‘(2A) This Act does not apply in relation to any request for information which is made to a public authority before the Act comes into force.

(2B) In subsection (2A) “request for information” and “public authority” have the same meaning as in the Freedom of Information Act 2000.’.
