The article presents the author's opinion on the rejection of freedom of information (FoI) requests by Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in Great Britain. He states that FoIs are mostly rejected to save the regulator's cost under FoI cost compliance rules. However, a recent rejection of a FoI request by FCA, under which, the number of whistleblowing reports made to the Financial Services Authority (FSA) was demanded, was inappropriate.
