Dear Mr Dawson, 
Further to my letter of 9 September, I am writing to provide you with a further update to 
your request, in which you ask for additional information about the presence of Carbon 14 
at the Chatham site. 
Unfortunately it is taking longer than originally hoped to conclude matters regarding your 
request and I can only ask for your understanding for the delay.  I will write to you again by 
4 November with either a substantive response or a further update to your request. 
If you are not satisfied with this response or 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 Deputy Chief Information Officer, 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
