Unfreedom of Information

John Hemming MP has made great play of his attacks on secrecy in the court system - he has declared himself unavailable for ministerial service because of his exploits in the family courts (although that might not stop him running for Mayor of Birmingham). He broke a court injunction to name a footballer who had failed in his attempts to keep his identity secret through the judicial system, but when it came to voting for the release of the NHS Risk Register this week, he reverted to type and voted slavishly with the government.
