All correspondence relating to the creation of .uk

The request was partially successful.

Dear Department for Business, Innovation and Skills,

Please could you provide me with all correspondence in the last 12 months between your department and Nominet UK in relation to their proposal to create a second level .uk domain name extension?

For the avoidance of doubt this should include all email communication on this matter between your officials and Nominet employees (including private Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail accounts).

Also please could you confirm the date of when your department first became aware of Nominet's intention to open up the .uk domain space at the second level?

Yours faithfully,

Angus Hanton
