Information Commissioner's Office - Annual Track Research

The Annual Track Research was published today on the ICO website, interestingly (perhaps an indication of priorities?) the press release makes no mention of FoI.

"Protecting personal information is now ranked as one of the top three most socially important issues, according to new research published by the Information Commissioner, Richard Thomas, today. Delivering the annual Steele Raymond Lecture (“Taking Information Rights Seriously”) at Bournemouth University, Mr. Thomas highlighted findings from the research, which show that “protecting people’s personal information” was ranked behind crime prevention and improving education standards as an issue of concern, alongside the NHS and ahead of equal rights, freedom of speech, national security and environmental issues."
