The Department of Trade and Industry have replied to our FOIA request about the RIPA Part III consultation, just within the statutory 20 working days.
Still no news from Her Majesty's Treasury.
The DTI mention a meeting with the Home Office the 30th of July, but they probably mean June.
Would this meeting have taken place anyway, or would the topic of the potential business impact of the Code of Practice on the legal definition of an Electronic Signature, have been on the agenda for this meeting, had there not been a Freedom of Information Act request to prompt it ?
This possible aspect of FOIA requests does not seem to have been discussed much.
