A law unto itself

I HAVE been involved with a Freedom of Information request that took twice the allowed time to respond to, writes James Henry.

It had nothing to do with CaRT, but the commissioner came down heavily on the company for taking so long to accede to the request.

Routinely ignores

So how is it that CaRT, as Allan Richards tells us, can  routinely ignores its voluntary undertaking, in one case taking 214 working days?  As Allan says, ten times more that the maximum permitted by law.

How many other requests have been treated with such scorn and disregard of the law?

There is really only one explanation—CaRT is a law unto itself.
