With increasing transparency the requests we receive under FOI ask for more and more complex information. We must balance the public need to make information available and to protect sensitive information."

In September, 60-plus IT employees outnumbered under-30 employees 4.53-to-1, and by December the ratio hit 4.64-to-1. That’s up from 1.8-to-1 roughly a decade ago.
