I have, in the past, been less than excited by the Freedom of Information Act. But, it does have its uses. And Julian Todd, hats off to him, has persisted in using it to reveal the details of the Liverpool Direct Limited contract with Liverpool City Council. I am no expert, and I suspect the question is not about law but about value and commercial good sense, but the contract is now open to public scrutiny. Any experts out there might want to view it: http://files.whatdotheyknow.com/request/liverpool_direct_bt_contracts/unredacted/.
All opinions welcome.
