Hi Stef

It might be worth talking to the OECD people who provide iLibrary. These are stats that currently are available for export and download into xls.
If these could be published as linked data it could be a very exciting prospect for students mashing related data from different tables.

I went to a recent ALPSP (Association of learned and professional society publishers) event on data publishing attended by Toby Green their Head of Publishing . Might be worth an approach?

i don't know if i want to seem the suggested data below as linked data, but i'm certainly interested in experimenting with it. ;)

you might want to have a look at the parltrack European parliament data:
http://parltrack.euwiki.org/dumps - schema is here:
also there's a json api for all objects.

also you might want to have a look at some other data we liberated:
