Darryl J Lee (Mr.)

Dear Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy,

Having seen on the GDF campaign website that "Government has asked RWM" and RWM has agreed to: "plan for, and build, a GDF" - And because The NDA (who is financially responsible for planning and building a GDF) does not hold any information pertaining to an agreement between Government and RWM, please disclose under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act and The Environmental Information Regulations, the Contract or other agreement between Government and RWM by which RWM is to both "plan for" and also to "build" "A GDF" (I.e. one, singular GDF).

If Government asked RWM to plan for and build a GDF in any other way, please reveal that method and disclose Government's request to RWM.

The point of highlighting that RWM have been asked by Government to build a (single) GDF is to highlight that this is against the Policy prescribed in the 2014 White Paper. (Where Government state that they merely "favour" a single GDF but do not rule-out multiple GDFs. Additionally, it appears that the Secretary of State has not Designated RWM as "the [sole] developer" [of all GDFs]

Yours faithfully,

Darryl J Lee (Mr.)
