'Risk register' must be kept secret6th March 2012

Giving evidence to an Information Tribunal Una O'Brien, the Permanent Secretary at the Department of Health, said the register was meant as an internal document to aid policy development, and not for public eyes. The department is appealing a decision by the Information Commissioner that it should publish the contents of the risk register.
