Justice CommitteeWritten evidence from John Davies

Gus O’ Donnell wants the FOI to be weakened- good—that means that it must be doing its job.

I would be more worried if Sir Humphries like O’Donnell were relaxed about the Act.

The Act is central to our freedoms fought for over decades—lastly my Mum and Dad in WW2.

In fact it needs extending for example to the banks—even the Telegraph supports that!

The disinfectant of sunlight on dark, corners of dirty secrets.
