Forthcoming release of "Downing Street Papers" re NPfIT

After three years of requests under the Freedom of Information Act Tony Collins of Computer Weekly has finally been successful in his campaign for the release of the briefing papers which led to the creation of the National Programme for Information Technology (NPfIT) in the UK's National Health Service.

A piece entitled "Secrets of Blair briefing on NPfIT to be surrendered" gives further information about the process which has finally led to the release which is expected this week. In a similar way to my own campaign for the release of the report into the NHSu the cabinet office have withdrawn their appeal against the Information Commissioners ruling just before the case reached the Information Tribunal.

I'm sure the papers will make interesting reading.
