Sir: With regard to your front-page article "Is this freedom of information?" (2 February), I wrote to Tessa Jowell three weeks ago asking what input the brewer-funded Portland Institute made to her decision to approve 24-hour drinking. As yet I have received no reply. Maybe, as in the case of the casino legislation, she needs "extra time to determine if this is in the public interest".
