UK Issues Responses to Open Data Consultation

30 January 2012

The United Kingdom government has posted the almost 500 responses to its consultation on open data.

The “Making Open Data Real” effort was launched in August with an October deadline for answers to questions “aimed at informing Government’s strategy to embed transparency and open data as core operating principles of the public services,” according to the post.

Four responses to the consultation have been redacted in part and one in full. “This information has been withheld in accordance with the principles set out in exemptions to the Freedom of Information Act 2000.”

Separately, the Freedom of Information Act is being reviewed by a parliamentary committee which is likely to recommend changes to the law. For more information see the UK Freedom of Information Blog.
