This is an experiment in participation. I would like to get to the bottom of this business of MLAs insurance, and it seems to me that it’;s best done openly. So I’ve begun a draft Freedom of Information request which is open for Slugger readers to add to and redraft… Or simply to comment on the Google doc or below.
I want to send it in on Monday. And I will post in to the Assembly via the WhatDoTheyKnow website. That way we can all keep track of it, note the response times and get notification when the response comes. I’ll post the relevant page once it has been sent.
So please do get weaving…
