The Information Commissioner may have been publicising Friday 28th September as international Your Right To Know Day (.pdf), but another Anniversary has now been reached:
It is now over 1000 days since our original Freedom of Information Act request was submitted, initially to both the Office of Government Commerce and to the Home Office, for the to pre-Stage Zero and the actual Stage Zero Gateway review reports, on the Home Office's Idenity Cards Programme.
Despite years of delays, and an appeal to the Information Commissioner, who made a Decision in favour of full publication, back in July 2006, followed by an appeal by the OGC to the Information Tribunal, who also found in favour of full disclosure in May 2007. The OGC is currently wasting more public money by appealing to the High Court, which still has nor set a date for the hearing.
See OGC Gateway Reviews of the Identity Cards Programme category archive for the history of this deliberate and disgraceful bureaucratic and political suppression of our rights and yours, under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
