Tessa Jowell MP, Labour's Shadow Cabinet Office Minister
, responding to the government's transparency announcement today, said:

"Labour has always been committed to government transparency, that is why we passed the Freedom of Information Act, which gave individuals new rights to access government information.

"However, the way in which this data is presented will affect its impact. The Tory-led Government should ensure that all data is released in a way that is easily accessible to the public."
