Dear Mr Richards,

Further to your request of 21st January 2011 please find attached copies of the papers from the January Board Meeting.

The Minutes and agenda can be found on our British Waterways website here http://www.britishwaterways.co.uk/about-....

Information has been redacted from the Olympic Report Jan 2011, BWML Investment Strategy jan 2011 and the Finance Board report Jan 11 as it is exempt from disclosure under the provisions of section 43 (Commercial Sensitivity) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 as disclosure would be prejudicial to the commercial interests of BW and third parties. Furthermore, the public interest in maintaining that exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information.

If we haven’t reasonably met your expectations in relation to a request for information or you believe we may not have acted in accordance with the above legislation you should write in the first instance to Kelly Radley Head of Customer Relations, 64 Clarendon Road, Watford, Herts WD17 1DA outlining your concerns and asking for a review to be undertaken. Your correspondence will be acknowledged and a review of your case will be undertaken by one of British Waterways’ directors.

Should you remain unsatisfied by the response you receive you are able to contact the Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF www.ico.gov.uk/Global/contact_us.aspx.
