Attorney General's Office Nid oedd gan y wybodaeth y gofynnwyd amdani.

Dear Attorney General’s Office,

Please provide a list of all security and justice investigation requests made to the Home Office, or other ministerial department, in 2016 in relation or in connection to the European Union Referendum (held on 23 June 2016).

I am particularly interested in any investigation requests that were rejected by the Home Office but I would like details of all such investigations and I hope that some or all of these security and justice investigation requests may have been sent on to the Attorney General for legal considerations and consultation.

Please note that I have already contacted the Home Office, Ministry of Justice and the Cabinet Office - all of which indicate that they do not hold this information.

Yours faithfully,

Mr David Smith
