The FT’s Westminster blog reports:
Officials have rejected a freedom of information request by the Financial Times, saying that the relevant information was produced “solely” for the joint committee on Lords reform. “A decision was taken by them not to publish it as part of their report,” they said in their response.
Several anti-reform peers are quoted in the rest of piece, clearly regretful that they’ll be (temporarily) denied the opportunity to tell us how awfully expensive a democratic Parliament would be.
Let’s hope that this sort of “how much for your principles?” argumentation is doomed to failure in any case.
