Dear Ministry of Defence,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Ministry of Defence's handling of my FOI request 'Anthrax production for Gulf War 1991

MOD asked me to clarify, whether i meant the Anthrax vaccine or the original bacteria Anthrax is then produced from. Insinuating 1 of them was supplied by the U.S. as it would have been simple to syate neither were and avoid wasting both parties time.

The fact that MOD have stated before that U.S dod not supply Anthrax vaccine, ee developed our own, led me to the question surrounding the bacteria / culture.

Please clarify if U.S anthrax bacteria was used to develope our own Anthrax from which in turn was used on our troops 1991 Gulf War.

Thankyou
