Falconer to curb secrecy of ministers

The Observer 9th January - Falconer to curb secrecy of ministers
"The cabinet minister responsible for the new Freedom of Information Act has said that ministers' diaries and details of who they meet should be opened up to public scrutiny.

In a move that would transform the way government operates, Lord Falconer, the Lord Chancellor, said he could see no reason why the people ministers meet on official business and those who represent outside interests, such as lobbyists, should be kept a secret."
