I want to move to Scotland...
It seems they're so much more enlightened there.
It's about time this 'commercial confidentiality' excuse was thrown out. I've tried to get several items of information under FOI about Health Service plans in Wales. The plans would have a potentially major impact on helath care in my area, but they were refused due to 'commercial confidentiality'. How can anything to do with the public sector be 'commercially confidential'? We are the tax payer, we are the people ultimately making the contract with the private sector partner, how can anything be concealed from us? I do a number of jobs for the public sector: I have no problems about disclosing the details. Why should anyone else? If companies don't like it, they don't have to work for the public sector.
Please can this decision be extended to England and Wales ASAP
