I see, oh!

I know that some of you have been following my FOI request to DfID for performance information.

Today I submitted a formal complaint to the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) about the way it's been handled.

In my view DfID have misapplied the exemptions in the Freedom of Information Act in their attempt to avoid publishing this information (you can read the details in the complaint itself).

The complaint to the ICO has been kindly supported by Andrew Mitchell MP (Shadow Secretary of State for International Development), Karin Christiansen (Publish What You Fund) and Toby Mendel (Centre for Law and Democracy). Many thanks to them all!
