Hughes Signals FoI Expansion to Public/Private Money

Guido still has to pinch himself when he remembers that Simon Hughes is a Justice Minister, but credit where credit is due. The LibDem told the Commons today:

“We do intend to extend FoI further as soon as it will be practical. We intend to publish a revised code of practice to make sure that those private companies that carry out public functions have freedom of information requirements in their contracts, and go further than that, and we hope that will be in place by the end of this year.”

Let the games begin.

Former Governor of the Bank of England Mervyn King…

“There are arguments for remaining in the EU and there are arguments for leaving the EU. But there is no case whatever for giving up the benefits of remaining without obtaining the benefits of leaving.”
