2 March 2016 — 38 Degrees
We’re one step closer to cracking down on private companies like Virgin and G4S who are taking over our public services.
Yesterday, the government’s own advisors backed what 38 Degrees members have been asking for in our hundreds of thousands – that we have a right to know what private companies who run services like in our NHS are up to. 
But here’s the snag. The advice is buried on page 51 of a new report about transparency laws – known as Freedom of Information (FOI).  It’d be easy to miss. David Cameron and his ministers will have the full report on their desks right now. And they’ll be weighing up which bits they should listen to.
