The Cabinet Office have launched a consultation paper on Making Open Data Real: A Public Consultation.

The consultation seeks the views on how Government can:

  • enhance a ‘right to data’, establishing stronger rights for individuals, businesses and other actors to obtain data from public service providers
  • how to set transparency standards that enforce this right to data
  • how public service providers might be held to account for delivering open data
  • how we might ensure collection and publication of the most useful data
  • how we might make the internal workings of government and the public sector more open
  • how far there is a role for government to stimulate enterprise and market making in the use of open data.

Internal reviews

The second to last paragraph on page 24 refers to "Legislating to provide statutory time limits for internal reviews."
