    10 things you could know, that you don't know now

    This article is an interesting one, and looks at some of the ways the new Freedom of Information act could assist the public in gaining access to information. Included in the examples given is this one: You want to know which routes are used for driving tests in your area. You could ask for details from the Driving Standards Agency, which is making this information more widely available. ..and this one: You were interviewed for a job at the local council, but the post was given to the son of a councillor instead. You feel aggrieved and complain to your MP, who takes up the case with the council. You could apply to the council for notes of the interviewing panel and any other papers that may have been compiled about the case.
