Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

I read with interest the BBC's response to FOI request RFI20201763 in which it was clearly stated "In response to your request the BBC does not have employees with the Job title of ‘Press Officer’. The equivalent is Communications Officer.".

And yet, BBC web page https://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/contac... lists the following posts:

Chief Press Officer : Ben
Press Officers : Freddie, Lidia, John, Jemimah, Emma

The full names of these six Press Officers are shown on the BBC media centre web page mentioned above but I have chosen to use only their forenames.

For clarification, please confirm that these six people are the same as the six stated to be Communications Officers in your response to RFI20201763.

Please also confirm that the information given in your response to RFI20201763 is incorrect, in that the BBC does have people employed with the job title Press Officer.

Yours faithfully,

Mr A Willmore

Dear FOI Enquiries,

Many thanks for your recent response to my FOI request.

It was only a few days ago that I checked the contents of the linked BBC Press Office page and it still showed the six Press Officers I listed at that time. As you state, the page has been updated in the few days since I last looked at it.

Yours sincerely,

Mr A Willmore
