Dear Mr Dawson 
 
REQUEST FOR INFORMATION – RELEASE OF INFORMATION UNDER THE 
FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000  
 
We advised you on 08 August that your request to release copies of the minutes/agendas 
and Terms of Reference for: 
 
     a: the Radiation Protection Policy Committee (RPPC) 
     b: the Radioactive Waste Working Group (RWWG) 
     c: the Radioactive Waste Information Group (RAWIG), 
     for the period 1990 to 2000 
 
were subject to a Public Interest Test as we believe the information feel within the scope of 
the following qualified exemption(s): e.g. Section 26 (Defence) Section 27 (International 
Relations). We advised that we hoped to have a response to you by 29th August 2012. 
Unfortunately it will not be possible to make this date due to a combination of unavailability 
of subject matter expertise through leave and sickness. We hope to have a final response 
to you by 21st September 2012. 
 
If you are not satisfied with this response or you wish to complain about any aspect of the 
handling of your request, then you should contact me in the first instance. If informal 
resolution is not possible and you are still dissatisfied then you may apply for an 
independent internal review by contacting the Head of Corporate Information, 2nd Floor, 
MOD Main Building, Whitehall, SW1A 2HB (e-mail [email address]). Please note that 
any request for an internal review must be made within 40 working days of the date on 
which the attempt to reach informal resolution has come to an end.  
 
If you remain dissatisfied following an internal review, you may take your complaint to the 
Information Commissioner under the provisions of Section 50 of the Freedom of 
Information Act. Please note that the Information Commissioner will not investigate your 
case until the MOD internal review process has been completed. Further details of the role 
and powers of the Information Commissioner can be found on the Commissioner's 
website, http://www.ico.gov.uk
 
Yours sincerely 
 
DSEA Secretariat Group
