Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear Her Majesty's Treasury,

As confirmed in previous FOI requests, a "small number of government officials in HMRC and HM Treasury were provided early sight of the Independent Loan Charge Review under strict and controlled conditions. This was to correct any factual errors ahead of publication and was provided in hard copy."

I understand the hard copies were destroyed and there is no way to ascertain whether those officials only corrected factual errors, or suggested other edits.

In order to clarify things, can you please provide the following:

1. the full list of 'government officials' (and other individuals, if applicable) who received the early copy of the Review;

2. A signed declaration by each one of those officials, where they confirm they only suggested corrections to factual errors, and did not suggest any other changes to the report.

3. Any email or other correspondence to/from the individuals included in point 1 above, in which that draft of the Loan Charge Review is discussed. For example, any emails to or from those individuals that include the keywords "Early sight" or "Preview" or "Draft". If this generates too many results, please restrict it to the months of August and September 2019.

Yours faithfully,

Matt Smith

Dear [email address] on behalf of FOI Requests,

I note with disappointment that my request (your ref. FOI2021/02416) has been delayed. By law you should reply "promptly", and by the 18th of February 2021.

I would like to ask for a prompt response (within the next 2-3 working days), and if that's not possible, for the opening of an internal review to understand the reason for such a delay.

Yours sincerely,

Matt Smith
