Party funding goes debate online - why not FOI?

Government Computing
reports that the DCA are funding an online forum about the future of Party funding: "Sir Hayden Phillips, who is leading the government's review into the issue, announced the launch of the relevant website on 31 July 2006. The Hansard Society is providing technical support.". The website is available here: Having bemoaned the lack of consultation and opportunities for debate offered by the DCA over the FOI fees issue, it would nice to see FOI getting the same treatment it is a very suitable issue for this type of forum - as its is a core democratic/accountabilty issue that all citzens poetentially should have interest in and would benefit from a wider debate.
