Olympic Stadium – Victory!!!

The tribunal hearing held on March 17th has rejected the London Legacy Development Corporation's (LLDC) appeal against the Information Commissioner's ruling that the full details of the Olympic Stadium contract should be made public. Although the LLDC can still lodge a further appeal they can only do so on legal grounds.

The hero this morning is undoubtedly CAS Trust board member Richard Hunt (he's not that good looking in real life) who spearheaded the campaign for full publication of the contract for three years before CAS Trust joined with thirteen other supporters' trusts to form a coalition to present the case.

Richard told BBC News yesterday that the LLDC should not waste any more public money on a further appeal and that they should publish the contract in full (as instructed by the Information Commissioner) this week.
