Gagging and FOI

1 Comment

SOS readers may recall that at  last week’s Overview and Scrutiny Committee Meeting, a question asked  by Barry Sangster elicited the reply from EDDC Chief Executive Mark Williams that several officers had been subject to “compromise agreements.”  ( Mentioned at http://sidmouthindependentnews.wordpress.com  29 March , Plannning planted firmly on the Business TAFF agenda   )

An article in today’s Daily Telegraph explores the subject further, as does one of the many recent Freedom Of Information (FOI) Requests to EDDC.

The following two links have details:
