Dear Ministry of Defence,

In March 2010, Bob Ainsworth made a ministerial direction regarding the Basra Memorial Wall.

In June 2010 the Treasury informed me in response to a FOI request for that direction that the MoD was intending to publish it the next month (i.e. July 2010): http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/35...

I've been unable to find a copy of this either on the MoD website or in the Parliamentary deposited papers.

Please could I have a copy of this direction, along with any letter written to him stating that the direction would be required?

Yours faithfully,

Ganesh Sittampalam

Dear Mr Sittampalam -

Thank you for your request below. Regrettably, I have been unable to
access the earlier HM Treasury response either from the link you have
provided, not from the What Do They Know website. I would therefore
appreciate you forwarding this to me if at all possible.

Yours sincerely,

Jeff Rolland

Dear Mr Rolland,

I can't easily send attachments, but I've put another copy at http://urchin.earth.li/~ganesh/temp/hmt.... in case it's the WhatDoTheyKnow site you're having specific problems with. Unfortunately the letter is scanned as an image rather than being a text PDF, so I can't just cut and paste the relevant passages into this email.

Nonetheless, my request stands separately from the Treasury's letter, which I mentioned just to provide some context.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Ganesh
