Dear HS2Enquiries,

Re my request FOI18-2080.

In respect to point 1, please can you confirm that the compensation fund(s) are a subset of the land and property budget. Presumably the fund(s) must be budgeted for and therefore appear as a budget item in any documents relating to the breakdown of costs?

Please provide any documents relating to the size of these funds to the lowest level of granularity which you ARE prepared to release.

In respect to point 2, I would like to clarify that I am requesting the job title of the person(s) who publish the minutes. I am not requesting any personal data, names or identifying information. A job title clearly does not fall under the category of personal data.

Since the original FOI was not replied to until after the required 20 days and the exceptions given do not seem reasonable, I would hope for a prompt reply and am requesting an internal review.

There seems to be a worrying trend of FOI requests to HS2 Ltd being replied to as late as possible, even where basic information is being requested (and refused). With a team of 4 full time FOI employees, basic replies should be quick and this feels like a deliberate effort to conceal information for as long as possible.

Yours sincerely,

Graeme Amis
