Repeal the 1920 Census Act and the Information Commissioner's ruling that the 1921 census should not be publicly available to view until 2022.

The 'Your Freedom' website was set up by the new coalition government.

This site gives you the chance to tell us which laws and regulations you think we should get rid of. Your feedback will inform government policy and some of your proposals could end up making it into bills we bring before Parliament to change the law

I don't know about this...weren't people told, when they filled in the 1921 census, that the records wouldn't be made available for 100 years? Although I'd like to get my hands on this stuff, I also think it's important to not break that trust with living people who might have stories and backgrounds that they don't want being made available...
