Dear Electoral Commission,

Please can I request, under Freedom of Information, for a copy of your business plans for the years 2016-2019?

In particular, I would like to see any section that might outline if hostile state activity features.

I have searched online for such plans for your department as previous ones were published, but can not find this period available. If you have published, can you please send me the URL.

Yours faithfully,

Iain Overton
