Dear FOIA Officer
Thank you for providing a response to my FOIA (Your ref: 22/03/jb/686) dated 5th April 2016. Could you please clarify if it is the case that PHE do not hold the correspondence specific to the meeting held on 6th November 1992 or that they do not hold this correspondence between the Chair of the JCVI and the pharmaceutical industry, at all? If it is the latter could you please direct me to the party which would hold copies of that correspondence or is it the case that no records were kept of what was provided to the pharmaceutical industry by the Chairperson.
Dear Mr File
Thank you for your request for further clarification dated 10 April 2016.
JCVI has confirmed that the information you have referenced is 24 years old, the JCVI secretariat was likely to be in the Department of Health (DH). Currently the JCVI secretariat falls under Public Health England. Therefore, JCVI have suggested that for historical JCVI data DH may be better placed to provide a response. Please note however, given the length of time that has passed, anything stored may have been destroyed. The Department of Health will advise you.
