My reference: LSM/FOI/120924/21

Background. The Royal Military Police (RMP) Journal, which is published three times each year (April, August and December), is the house Journal of the RMP. It includes articles of a historical or technical (Police) nature. **The Journal has a major role to play in recording events and views for future historians and in that respect has a valuable function to discharge hence it is essential that moments of historical research significance are properly recorded and presented for publication.** The Journal is distributed to all regular Officers and NCOs in the RMP, to TA Provost Units and to subscribers. A number of each print run are used for RMP Public Relations purposes and as such are sent to each Chief Officer of Police of all UK Home Office and specialised Police Forces as well as some foreign and Commonwealth Military Police Corps and their Associations.

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

Please provide all copies of RMP Journal from January 2000 to the most recent issue.

My preferred format to receive this information is by electronic means. If one part of this request can be answered sooner than others, please send that information first followed by any subsequent data. 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.
