UK and Germany aim to curb official secrecy

Financial Times 17th Dec.

"Traditions of government secrecy in Britain and Germany are heading for the history books as the two countries prepare to grant greater public access to official information. In Berlin today the German parliament will debate draft rules for a freedom of information act which is expected to become law in mid-2005. Apart from Luxembourg, Germany is the only European Union member state without existing or pending freedom of information legislation"
