Apparently the government has moved control of Ordnance Survey, Met Office
and Land Registry agencies over to the Department for Business, Innovation
and Skills.


>From the article:

"The OS office had previously operated under the Department for Communities
and Local Government but has been shifted, along with the Met Office and
Land Registry, as part of the Cabinet Office's plans to debut the so-called
Public Data Corporation later this year.

BIS, whose Secretary of State is Lib Dem MP Vince Cable, isn't exactly
considered a champion of the open data movement, so the fact that it has
taken control of Blighty's mapping agency will come as a surprise to some."
