Common sense in government

An interesting article on Free Our Data.

In a recent debate on Public Information (Comercial Use) Mark Todd MP and Gareth Thomas, seem to be agreeing on the benefits of the current trading fund model and the need for caution in determining an alternative.

Good to see that politicians are seeing through some of the arguments. Could this be the beginning of the end? I doubt it, there is still a Trading Funds Study to come and there is a good case for some change but not free data for commercial use.
