My, That Was Quick...

Not strictly relevant, but I've been dying to use it

No sooner had I posted than:

Dear Mac the Knife

The Information Commissioner's Office has agreed that the BBC is not
required to offer an internal review under the Act when the Act does not
apply to the information requested, as in this case.

You may appeal directly to the Information Commissioner's Office; the
details of how to do so are set out in the Appeal Rights section of the
letter. As noted in the letter, the Information Commissioner's Office
has already considered similar requests and decided that information
about the resources allocated to a particular story is not covered by
the Act.

Yours sincerely
Rachel Hallett

Do I detect a slight hint of world weary impatience at my obtuseness? Perhaps I'm just getting a little sensitive in my old age.

No matter. Off to the Information Commissioner I think.

Tune in again, same Mac time, same Mac channel.
