Dear Mr Ward

 

Thank you for your e-mail of 18 November.  Since our position is that the
information in the actual list is exempt under section 27(1) of the FOI
Act, we cannot comment on the accuracy or otherwise of the list which you
provided.

 

We were not entirely clear whether you were asking for an internal review
of the original response, in addition to your specific question. It would
be helpful if you could confirm whether you would like us to carry out an
internal review.

 

Regards
