Financial Times:

The Office of Government Commerce is to appeal to the High Court over a ruling that requires it to disclose a review of the controversial ID cards project.

The so-called “gateway reviews” are conducted at critical stages of all big government IT projects to determine whether they are on track.

It argues that to do so would hamper the frank discussion on which they depend.
