Our attention has been drawn to this in yesterdays Guardian:
Freedom of information: Minister aims to ease rules on access to data
Francis Maude launches public consultation designed to open up Whitehall
Bring it on!
Our informant particularly liked this bit, “This is designed to encourage better self-regulation on data storage by officials. If they know that more requests are likely to be granted then they will start collating information more efficiently at an earlier stage.” He made the following observation which I can still hear echoing round, if I put my head out of the back door. Ho ho ho ho ho ho ha ha ha ha hee hee hee!!!
Anyone remember the ‘laughing policeman’ song? It sounds like that, but far more hysterical!
