Dear Welsh Government,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Welsh Government's handling of my FOI request '21 international offices'.

In your response you stated the following,
"The information requested is exempt under Section 21 of the FOI Act (Information
accessible to the applicant by other means)."
Taken from the ICO site,
"To rely on section 21, you must first establish if you hold for the purposes of FOIA the information as described in the request. You cannot claim the section 21 exemption based on theoretical considerations about whether or not you hold the requested information or information of the same type."

"You must respond to the applicant to confirm or deny holding the requested information. If you do hold it, you must explain why section 21 applies. You should also inform the applicant where and how they can obtain the information"

as per the last para above you must tell me where I can find the information, please either supply the information or send me the link so I can find it.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/2...

Yours faithfully,

Philip Cook
