    The policy objective I wish to pursue with this paper, in terms of the coalition agreement, is to ensure that public sector information is as widely accessible and available to citizens as possible. First of all because citizens need that information in order to participate in the democratic process. Secondly, national welfare is likely to benefit from public sector information being made available in an openminded manner. Thinking in terms of the new knowledge-based economy implies that the societal value of this information will increase as more people use it.
