Dear Sir or Madam,

Dear Mr McGovern

Thank you for your email below. As set out in the response letter, the BBC
does not offer an internal review when it considers that the information
requested is not covered by the Act. In these cases, the Information
Commissioner's Office has agreed that requesters may appeal directly to
the ICO, and details of how to do so are set out in the letter.

Yours sincerely
