Dear Mr. Fox,

Thank you for the prompt response.
The papers you have released refer to a number of other documents which I believe ought to have been released under this request.

1. From https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/5...

"Attached is my comments on various modelling reports. I don’t think I have
received your response to my comments. I have yet seen a copy of the Traffic Forecasting
Report (TFR) and Economic Appraisal Report (EAR). Could you please forward these reports
to me? "
I would like to see the attached comments referred to by the DfT author, AND if they are available, the TFR and EAR reports s/he requests in this email.

2. From https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/5...

"HC continue to release sections of the FBC to DfT Major Schemes team, in advance of this."

I request copies of the FBC sections referred to

3. From https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/5...

"The Option Refinement Report is being drafted and will be provided to DfT in due course –
this will detail the schemes to be included in the business case alongside the SLR and will be
considered by cabinet to enable a preferred package and a programme for delivery
confirmed. "

I would like sight of the Option Refinement Report referred to.

Yours sincerely,

Robert Palgrave

Dear Mr Palgrave,

Thank you for your email.

Replying to your comments in turn.

1. I apologise for omitting to include the "comments on various modelling reports" attached to one of the emails I disclosed with my letter of 24 August. These comments are now attached as document 14. To date, we have not received the Traffic Forecasting Report and Economic Appraisal Report.

2. The Department has made an offer to HCC to comment on drafts of the Final Business Case (or sections of the FBC if Herefordshire choose to take that approach) but, to date, we have not received any drafts. We therefore do not hold this information. The official who wrote the meeting note made an error or was mistaken in saying " HC continue to release sections of the FBC to DfT Major Schemes team, in advance of this" as HCC has not yet started the process of releasing sections to us.

3. The Option Refinement Report was not included in the documents attached to my reply as it fell outside the scope of your request. It was filed on our system on 21 February 2018 and so pre-dated the time period specified in your current request and post-dated the time period in your previous requests of a similar nature. I am happy to take this as a new request. As this document came from a third party [HCC] I will need to consult with them in order to reach a decision on whether the requested information can be released. I will write to you again once this consultation has taken place and the Department has made a decision on whether to release it.

Regards,
