Dear FOI Requests,

Your refs:
1. EIR2021/11713;
2. EIR2021/11710.

Thank you for your response of 12th May 2021.

May I remind you of my request of 24th March.

"Please supply documents written in the past 2 years for the Department for Business, Energy
and Industrial Strategy, which mention GWP*."

In your reply of the 23rd April, this was interpreted to mean "documents externally written for, or commissioned by, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy". This excludes documents written by DBEIS. Please confirm that your rather odd interpretation of my request was intended.

In response to this reply, I made two further requests on 23rd April. One was

1. "Please supply documents written in the past 2 years by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, which mention GWP*."

This was intended to clarify my intentions in the request of 24th March.

The other was

2. "Please supply documents written in the past 2 years held by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, which mention GWP*."

The first request is clearly narrower than the first.

In your reply of 12 May, there is only mention of the second request. I.e.

"Dear Mr Geoff Beacon,

Thank you for your emails of 23rd April where you requested the following information:

1. Please supply documents written in the past 2 years held by the Department for
Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, which mention GWP*;

2. Please supply documents written in the past 2 years held by the Department for
Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, which mention GWP*. "

There is clearly a mistake here, which, for a second time, excludes documents written in the past 2 years BY the Department.

I appreciate that the second of these requests is broader than the first.

Please clarify. Also confirm that in "documents externally written for, or commissioned by, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy" was intended to exclude document written internally.

Yours sincerely,

Geoff Beacon

Dear FOI Requests,

Your refs:
1. EIR2021/11713;
2. EIR2021/11710.

I have not yet received a response to my response of 16th May 2021.

I'm sure you will have noted my mistake in writing

" past 2 years for the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy" in the first part of my request"

This is stated correctly later in the response

" past 2 years by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy" in the first part of my request"

Yours sincerely,

Geoff Beacon
