Dear Cavalleros, Hannah,

My FoI request refers.

Having initially failed to provide a prompt reply to my request the Department has failed to provide a complete response within the working days allowed by statute. This failure leaves the Executive Office in breach of its statutory obligations under the Freedom of Information Legislation.

Trusting this delay is not part of an attempt by the Executive Office to delay disclosure of documentation whose content may highlight issues which some may prefer was kept from the public domain.

Yours sincerely,

Ed Robb
