GOVERNMENT DESPERATE TO CONCEAL THE TRUE COST OF NET ZERO POLICY

 Are you, like me, wondering when the Treasury will be complying with the Information Commissioner's decision requiring them to publish the calculations leading to the £ TRILLIONfigure for the cost of reaching net zero emissions. You can read the lengthy judgement of the request here . It appears there is still some time to wait before the information is released as they have up to 35 days from the decision (made on 20 January). This takes us to 24 February. However if HM Treasury were to appeal, and given how hard they fought to prevent this decision I would not rule it out, they could appeal up to 20 days from the decision (up to 17 February) and then there would be a few more months leading to another decision.
