The threat to Freedom of Information is imminent and very serious, and many people and a wide range of organisations are deeply concerned.
Sam and Phil (as medConfidential) joined over 140 media bodies, campaign groups and others in co-signing a letter to the Prime Minister, organised by the Campaign for Freedom of Information. We are also co-signatories to a letter from the Open Government Network to Matthew Hancock, Minister for the Cabinet Office.
