Emails on Export of BAE Products

Gwrthodwyd y cais gan Department for International Trade.

Dear Department for International Trade,

Please consider this as a request under the Freedom of Information Act.

I hereby request the following records:

All emails between between staff of the Export Control Organisation in DIT specifically discussing export license applications for BAE Applied Intelligence products, from 13 July 2016 to the present.

If this request would be too burdensome on the agency, triggering exemption Section 12, I ask that the agency conducts a key word search in Export Control Organisation employee's emails for "BAE Applied Intelligence", "BAE Systems Applied Intelligence", and "BAE Systems", and provide all responsive email threads.

In order to help to determine my status to assess fees, you should know that I am a journalist writing for Motherboard, and that this request is being made as part of news gathering.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Yours faithfully,

Joseph Cox

Hey,

Thank you for the response. In your last letter you said my request would go over the Section 12 cost limit; with that in mind, I have narrowed the timescale of my request by a full year. Do you think this would fall under the limit? Please see the revised request below.

- All emails between between staff of the Export Control Organisation in DIT specifically discussing export license applications for BAE Applied Intelligence products, from 13 July 2017 to the present.

Yours sincerely,

Joseph Cox
