Well argued, well asked

Yesterday's Sunday Times carried a letter from Chris Lamb, the person who submitted the freedom of information request for disclosure of cabinet minutes in the run-up to the Iraq war.

In a well-argued series of comments, Lamb laments the information tribunal's refusal to order the publication of the cabinet secretary's handwritten notes of the two meetings. He describes the tribunal's decision as otherwise "exemplary".

I can't imagine the government will agree as it scrambles to find grounds for appealing the decision.
