Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
From The Press Gazette:
An Open Democracy journalist has won the right to see tax-funded research produced by Jacob Rees-Mogg's European Research Group after an 18-month Freedom of Information battle.
Jenna Corderoy appeared in front of the First-Tier Tribunal in May to argue there was public interest in seeing the documents because of the Conservative ERG's "significant influence" and role in shaping Government Brexit policy.
The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority is now due to publish the ERG documents by 11 July.
This could be very informative.
