This article analyses the new Danish Access to Information Act, specifically how it has controversially reduced public access to information when it comes to the most central political decisions. These changes represent an interesting development in a state usually considered an exponent for a high level of transparency in the public sector. We analyse how the Act has made it possible to reject applications for information to be used for ministerial advice and pertaining to documents exchanged between ministers and MPs, and we discuss the introduction of an article enabling the rejection of applications solely on the grounds that they will use considerable administrative resources.
