Fees story

The Code request I've made has generated quite a few comments via email, many of the them of critical of the DCA's redaction and use of exemptions. I'm currently considering whether to appeal the exemptions via internal review, the next stage would be to complain via my MP to the Ombudsman. Keep your comments coming - feel free to post them on the blog

Apart from the usual concerns over the lack of progress and decisions on how and what we should charge, the item on all fees going to the Treasury is a major one.

Does this apply to Government departments only, what about Local Government? If fees are to reimburse time spent in addition to normal services being provided, this appears to negate this and will only increase costs and hences taxes.

As I understand it, fees will go to HM Treasury from Central Govt only
