ICO specialist guidance published
The ICO have published their internal freedom of information and environmental information knowledge base on their website. The specialist guidance includes the ICO's lines to take documents, which "capture the Commissioner's position in relation to issues that have arisen in casework or as a result of Tribunal decisions". The LTT documents had previously been released via WhatDoTheyKnow in response to an FOI request by Alex Skene, who made them available in a more accessible manner on the FOI wiki which he hosts. The ICO has decided to make these routinely available together with several legal background papers and other policy resources, which were previously only accessible on the ICO intranet site.
