Dear David,

It appears that you have provided the data for points 1 & 2 but not for point 3, are you able to provide that data as well please?

"3. If available, the reason for the change of residence order being made in each
case that it has been made and whether from mother to father or vice versa"

Yours sincerely,

Brian Hudson

Carmichael, David, Ministry of Justice

Mr Hudson

I've extracted the below from the original response:-

Information collated centrally by the Family Court management information system does not include specific information involved in the applications or orders relating to the residence of a child, such as whether the residence of a child was transferred from one place to another; nor does it include the reason for a change of residence order being made

The final sentence indicates data covering point 3 cannot be provided and you were invited to refine excluding that part of the request, which you did by saying 'please go ahead with the suggested amendment', which excluded point 3, and we sent you data in accordance with that.

You are free to request a review if you still disagree.
