Dear Mr Sheperd,
Thank you for your request for information, which was received on 31 January 2011. You

I have dealt with your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

A copy of the information is enclosed in the format you requested. This includes letters to
the Secretary of Sate and responses from the Secretary of State or relevant ministers where
either original letter or response falls within the specified timeframe.

section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act where disclosure would breach any of the
eight Data Protection Principles in the Data Protection Act, and otherwise be considered
unfair in terms of processing that data.

it for your own purposes, including for private study and non-commercial research, and for
any other purpose authorised by an exception in current copyright law. Documents (except

the Department by writing to me within two calendar months of the date of this letter. Your
complaint will be considered by an independent review panel, who were not involved in the
original consideration of your request.
