Shameless Cover Up

Kevin from One Nottingham has been back in touch, thought I'd heard the last from him. Here's what he had to say about my request for a copy of the tender meeting minutes and other documents -

"We have taken the decison not to supply the information you requested, in our considered opinion, release of this information would damage the commercial interests of Nottingam City Council, One Nottingham and the parties involved in the tendering process.

I would refer you to my email dated 2nd November 2010."

NCCLols translation service; "We're not giving you the info because that would let the cat out of the bag about the dodgy backroom deals we've pulled." 

Looks like it might be time to put plan B into operation.

I can understand - although not agree with in this context - the notion of 'damaging the commercial interests' of a private company but should two publicly-funded and publicy-accountable organisations (NCC and One Nottingham) be able to hide their affairs behind such a defence?

Of course they shouldn't. Good luck in challenging this appalling cover-up.
