Dear Department for Transport,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Department for Transport's handling of my FOI request 'Background to S.I . 2007/3482'.

A response today from Judith Tracey indicated that the records have been destroyed in accordance with good practice.

This would not be good practice.

Please search again.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address:

Dear Mr. Parr,

Thank you for this impressively thorough review.

I must apologise for the hiatus in coming back to you.

The Department has confirmed that it holds information within the scope of this request which it nevertheless believes to be exempt information within the meaning of Section 42(1) of the Act.

I would be grateful if you could, therefore, further enumerate the documents withheld in broad terms so that we at least know what we are talking about.

For example, something along the lines of -

==================
Exempt Document 1:

Memo from [job title, department] to [job title, department] dated [date]

This memo concerns the applicability of Part 4 of the Regulations.
==================

Yours sincerely,

Mr. O'Brien

FOI-ADVICE-TEAM-DFT, Department for Transport
