Home Office need some time to consider…

Posted in Uncategorized by ukliberty on September 25, 2008

…whether or not to confirm or deny that they hold information relating to the Interception Modernisation Programme (that lovely system that will store the details of our communications over telephone, email, and the interwebs) – see the Open Rights Group.

The Government really is a parody of itself:

We are currently assessing the public interest in saying whether or not we hold the information you have requested …

This letter should not be taken as conclusive evidence that the information you have requested exists or does not exist.

I wonder if the public interest is served by such a reply.

I wonder if the public interest would be served by denying that the information requested existed if it did in fact exist.
