In a mind boggling descent into the absurd, Suffolk County Council has said it will not release details of the libraries consultation until after the Cabinet has met and made its decison.
The Freedom of Information Office has claimed it is in the “public interest” not to release the information. This from a council which has been talking about the level of responses and selectively quoting from them in a press release.
James Hargrave, who made the information request has the details here.
The council has so far failed to release details of the “public interest test” and Hargrave has blogged in this potentially illegal act.
According to the partial refusal of information the consultation results will pnot be published until July, after the Cabinet has met. The consultation is open until the end of April.
