Hail to the (New GRC) Chief

After something of a delay following the elevation of the previous incumbent to the High Court (now Mr Justice Peter Lane), the Senior President of Tribunals has now announced the next Chamber President of the General Regulatory Chamber. It is Judge Alison McKenna, who has been the Principal Judge of the GRC for a couple of years now. Judge McKenna will be familiar to users of the Tribunal, and she has decided many FOIA appeals. Panopticon welcomes her to the Presidency and the expanded information rights domain she will doubtless receive when the Data Protection Bill is finally enacted.
