PDC – is anything happening?


A couple of questions in the House of Commons yesterday (surprising that there is time for any government business other than #notw).

Thanks to They Work For You we know that Francis Maude and Ed Davey will be joint chairs of a Transition Board that will

oversee the establishment of the PDC Board

and we also learn that a statement will be published in the autumn outlining

“(a) the agencies and data to be included in the Public Data Corporation, (b) how the data will be made available, (c) what the licensing terms will be for the data and (d) who will oversee and regulate the corporation”

If they can announce all of that in the autumn, I will be surprised to say the least.
