Scotland : Anger at £1.2m price of freedom

"Set up to police the revolutionary new laws, which come into force this January, the commissioner, Kevin Dunion, has set up office in an impressive mansion in St Andrews, along with 13 members of staff.

New papers, which were published last week by the Scottish Parliament as a result of the new freedom of information laws, reveal that Dunion is asking for an increase of 76% - £532,000 - on his original £700,000 a year budget, claiming that the requirements of his office are "significantly greater" than first thought."
