Dear Ministry of Defence,

Please confirm that Rainwater Readings were not taken of the rainfall following the 1/Short Granite detonation 15 May 1957.
I am aware Rainwater Readings were taken of subsequent detonations-- 2/Orange Herald
3 Purple Granite etc.

Yours faithfully,
Rex Young

Dear DES SEC-PolSecShips and Subs (MULTIUSER),

This is ridiculous.
You are clearly playing for time.
You have this information readily to hand, having dealt with it previously.
I am merely seeking current confirmation prior to the Spring 2016 re-trying of your past legally flawed deliberations.
I shall draw the attention of my colleague's Tribunal Judge, when I give evidence on his behalf later in the year.

Yours sincerely,

rex young

Dear Mr Young,

We apologise for the delay you have experienced in relation to the
handling of your request, our reference FOI2015/09938.

The MOD Information Rights Compliance team do not normally conduct an
independent internal review of the handing of a request until the
substantive response has been issued. If you remain dissatisfied with the
final response when you receive it, please contact us again. 

Under the FOI Act, you have an absolute right to appeal to the Information
Commissioner under the provisions of section 50 of the Act regardless of
whether the public authority concerned has completed an internal review.
Further details of the role and powers of the Information Commissioner can
be found on the Commissioner's website at [1]https://ico.org.uk/

 

Yours sincerely,

MOD Information Rights Compliance Team

Dear CIO-FOI-IR (MULTIUSER),

I think the 20 working days for an Internal Revue are up.
When may I expect a reply please?

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr Young,

Thank you for your email of 11 April 2016. There appears to have been some confusion. Your request for an internal review to Defence Equipment & Support (DE&S) of the 9 March 2016, sent on the same day as the substantive response was provided by the Ministry of Defence, was not forwarded to this office for processing and until your follow-up e-mail of today we were previously unaware. We do not monitor the www.whatdotheyknow.com website.

We acknowledge receipt of your e-mail and will undertake an internal review of your request for information processed by DE&S on behalf of the Ministry of Defence (reference above). The review will involve a full, independent reconsideration of the handling of the case as well as the final decision.

The Department's target for completing internal reviews is 20 working days and we therefore aim to complete the review and respond to you by 9 May 2016.

Yours sincerely,

MOD Information Rights Compliance Team

Dear CIO-FOI-IR (MULTIUSER)
Being the 9th May 2016----- May I expect your Internal Review findings today please?

Yours sincerely,

Dear CIO-FOI-IR (MULTIUSER),

Thank you for the Internal Review FOI2015/09938
I wish you had dealt with the important issues instead of wasting space with arrant pedandtry--Your request was not worded in an acceptable way. Come off it!.

At a previous War Pensions Tribunal Hearing the high ranking Army Officer MOD had sent along said
"Christmas Island Nuclear Test records were meticulously accurate and comprehensive"
Wow!
Your Internal Review has proved this to be totally inaccurate.
Rainwater readings were not taken of the three Tests I endured, but AWRE (later AWE) produced documents to the Tribunal declaring they were.
The June 2016 Abdale re-hearing ,under an unbiased Judge might, eventually, get at the truth.
We will see

Yours sincerely,

rex young
