Request for a copy of a particular 1990’s recruiting poster

Gwrthodwyd y cais gan Y Weinyddiaeth Amddiffyn.

My reference: LSM/FOI/120924/26

Further to s1(1) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000:

In the mid/late 1990’s the Army published a number of recruiting posters targeted at ethnic minorities. One of these was entitled, ‘Why you shouldn’t throw our new anti-racism plan straight in the bin’, and the image was that of a crumpled sheet of paper in a circular waste bin.

Please provide a copy of that poster. Thank you.

My preferred format to receive this information is by electronic means. If you need any clarification of this request please feel free to email me. If FOI requests of a similar nature have already been asked could you please include your responses to those requests.

I note that under s16 of the Act, it is the MOD's duty to provide advice and assistance, so far as it would be reasonable to expect the department to do so, to persons who make requests for information to it. Accordingly, if the MOD considers attempting to block release of information under s12 of the Act (exemption where cost of compliance exceeds appropriate limit), please a) provide a breakdown of costs, and b) explain what information *would* be releasable within the appropriate limit according to the department's purported calculations. I would, in that situation, apply for internal review, and ultimately apply for decision by the Information Commissioner, per s50 of the Act.

I would be grateful if you could confirm in writing that you have received this request, and I look forward to hearing from you within the 20-working day statutory time period.
