The Department for Education is to appeal the ICO decision of 01 March 2012 which ordered Michael Gove to release information contained in private emails unless there is an exemption under the FOI Act to release. The ICO decided that the emails comprised information relating to official government business and therefore fell under the auspices of the FOI regime.
The story is available on the guardian website. The JISC Legal FAQ on Staff Private Email Accounts and FOI provides more detail on what the ICO decision means for colleges and universities.
