Apparently, the normal slight smoothing of minor things in the Hansard reports may have gone too far this time, as reported in the Register and picked up from the original story in the Ideal Government blog.
Slightly worrying – the change to the text makes for some major change in meaning!
The Hansard site iself states: ” Hansard is:
“a full report, in the first person, of all speakers alike, a full report being defined as one ‘which, though not strictly verbatim, is substantially the verbatim report, with repetitions and redundancies omitted and with obvious mistakes corrected, but which on the other hand leaves out nothing that adds to the meaning of the speech or illustrates the argument.'””
Did they think they were correcting an “obvious mistake” when they changed “hack-proof, not connected to the Internet” to “secure database; it will not be accessible online”?
