News: "The government has blocked the disclosure of a set of "particularly frank" letters written by Prince Charles to ministers, arguing that publishing them would inhibit their future conversations and undermine his preparation to become king. Dominic Grieve, the attorney general, issued a veto that puts an absolute block on the publication of the 27 letters sent between the prince and ministers over a seven-month period. Grieve said that the publication of the letters "would potentially have undermined (Charles's) position of political neutrality". His veto comes after seven government departments lost a long-running freedom of information tribunal over the disclosure of the letters in which the prince lobbied ministers with his views. The veto overrides last month's ruling by the tribunal that the public had a right to know how the prince sought to change policy. ... " Rob Evans, Robert Booth, The Guardian
