Paying for data your taxes paid for

Guardian Unlimited Technology | Technology | Give us back our crown jewels

Interesting piece in today's Technlogy Guardian, in which Charles Arthur and Michael Cross examine the anomaly of UK public sector data, which tax payers have paid for, being unavailable to individuals, public or private sector without further payment, unlike the US situation where this information is put into the public domain

However they do not include the data collected by the NHS and Department of Health, through the Health and Social Care Information Centre which is then contracted out to a private company Dr Foster, as previously mentioned on this blog.
