Dear FOI-DPA PMCS (Sensitive),

Thank you for our letter of 31st of January 2019 where you confirm that : " the Foreign and Commonwealth Office does hold information falling within the terms of your request" You also say "we have not yet reached a decision on where the balance of the public interest lies" referring to the exception "International Relations" and advising me that a response may be provided to me on 28th of February 2019.

If you are unable to satisfy my request in its entirety, you may perhaps partially fulfil it by releasing a quality copy of Note A295/17.

I would for the record like to bring forth the following argument for your consideration when you weigh up the public interest. The poor quality of document A295/17 as published by AP gives rise to speculation that it may have been tampered with prior to publication. In that case a misrepresentation of the position of the British government on the issue cannot be ignored.

Yours sincerely,

Emmy Butlin
