Dear Mr Baldwin,
Thank you for your email of 18 September 2017 requesting the following information:
Could I please be supplied with copies of the authorised insignia for Service,
Working, Flying and Field dress of the now RAFAC.
I am treating your correspondence as a request for information under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 (FOIA).
A search for the information has now been completed within the Ministry of Defence,
and I can confirm that information in scope of your request is held. The information
you requested is attached.
Section 40(2) has been applied to some of the information in order to protect
personal information as governed by the Data Protection Act 1998. Section 40 is an
absolute exemption and there is therefore no requirement to consider the public
interest in making a decision to withhold the information.
Under Section 16 of the FOIA you may find it useful to know that this Air Publication
is currently under review.
If you are not satisfied with this response or wish to complain about any aspect of
the handling of your request, then you should contact me in the first instance. If
informal resolution is not possible and you are still dissatisfied then you may apply
for an independent internal review by contacting the Information Rights Compliance
Team, Ground Floor, MOD Main Building, Whitehall, SW1A 2HB (e-mail CIO-FOI-
email@example.com). Please note that any request for an internal review must be made
within 40 working days of the date on which the attempt to reach informal resolution
has come to an end.
If you remain dissatisfied following an internal review, you may raise your complaint
directly to the Information Commissioner under the provisions of Section 50 of the
Freedom of Information Act. Please note that the Information Commissioner will not
normally investigate your case until the MOD internal review process has been
completed. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at: Information
Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.
Further details of the role and powers of the Information Commissioner can be found
on the Commissioner's website at https://ico.org.uk/.
