    Interim victory on websites

    The Assembly Commission has now decided that the guidance on websites will not become operational until 1 September 2008.

    But we are warned:

    In the interim, those Members who use office costs allowance to support their websites should review them.

    I will be carrying on as before on this weblog while awaiting legal advice. By 1 September, we will of course have long had Counsel's opinion.

    A lengthy reply has been sent to me by the Clerk to the Assembly Commission on the points I raised here. I will be responding to it in detail next week. It demonstrates how badly thought-through the advice is, and the answers given raise yet more questions.

    I know of only two AMs who really support the guidance on websites - the Presiding Officer and the member of the Assembly Commission responsible for ICT, who seems to think this is a 'one-blog' protest. He can't count then either: see here and here, to start with.
