WhatDoTheyKnow, Parliament and copyright

The Register has an article today Parliament’s take on Freedom of Information which describes an FOI request I made using WhatDoTheyKnow, and the House of Commons’ refusal to respond to it because the response would be automatically republished.

Hopefully the House will choose to waive copyright on the document, and send it soon – I still haven’t seen a good reason why they could or should not.

(Also, I haven’t changed my name to Francis Stirling, hopefully The Register will correct it soon!)
