Openness report 'not published'

BBC website:

"An unpublished report into openness at Scottish Water has left one of its authors and politicians outraged. The report was ordered by watchdogs who keep the company in check. The Customer Consultation Panels admitted the document had not been published because it was out of date by the time it was filed.....The Scottish Conservative Party is to ask Kevin Dunion, the ombudsman who deals with information for public services, to investigate the matter. The report was ordered two years ago and four academics from three universities worked for the best of a year on the project. The researchers began their work by acting as members of the public, attempting to see what information was available in libraries and online."

This was also apparently featured on the Scottish version of the Newsnight TV programme

The full report is now available as download from the researcher's website at University of Strathcylde

Thanks to Tony for alerting me about this
