UK Information Commissioner: Watchdog bites himself

There has been a lot of chortling in the UK that the Information Commissioner has investigated a complaint and concluded that his office breached its obligations under the FOI Act. The matter arose because in the UK the Act confers a right to ask for information without the need to specify that it is a FOI application. The office didn’t deal with a letter as if it was an FOI request.

This BBC report gives you the gist but Rob Edwards blog gets the headline award: “Information watchdog bites himself”.His page has a link to the Commissioner's Notice
