Considering the latest news from the US does the MOD maintain that they have no UFO/UAP program?

Waiting for an internal review by Ministry of Defence of their handling of this request.

Dear Ministry of Defence,
The MOD and the RAF have long maintained that they do not investigate UAP/UFO sightings unless there is a risk or danger to the defence of the United Kingdom. Bearing this in mind, have they changed their minds/protocols in light of the fact that the US Government and The Pentagon have recently admitted to the AATIP (Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification program) and disclosed to the world images from US Navy aircraft of confirmed UAP's?

In addition, has the MOD or any of its agencies or the RAF been involved, assisted or collaborated with AATIP in its investigations and if they have what are these details?

In addition, with the signing of the Pandemic Bill this week by President Trump and the requirement of the US Intelligence agencies to provide within 180 days details of “Observed airborne objects that have not been identified” which should include “Detailed analysis of unidentified phenomena data collected by a). geo-spatial intelligence; b). signals intelligence; c). human intelligence and d). measurement and signals intelligence,” to the Senate Defence Intelligence Committee; will the British MOD/RAF and HM Government consider something similar?

The report to the Senate must also contain, “A detailed analysis of data which was derived from investigations of intrusions of unidentified aerial phenomena data over restricted United States airspace … and an assessment of whether this unidentified aerial phenomena’s activity may be attributed to one or more foreign adversaries.” Does the UK not consider this for our security and if not why not?

Yours faithfully,

Dear Ministry of Defence,

Please can you give me some idea of when you will reply to my FOI from January. I appreciate there are problems with Covid but surely staff working from home could answer this?

Dear Ministry of Defence,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Ministry of Defence's handling of my FOI request 'Considering the latest news from the US does the MOD maintain that they have no UFO/UAP program?'.

It is now three months since I made this application. While I appreciate the issues Covid has caused, there are a great many people including myself working from home and I would have imagined an organisation like the MOD would have people working at their main buildings and at home during this period.

I believe my request is a simple one and asks for a comment from the MOD on recent developments in the USA and its impact upon the MOD/RAF/UK.

I look forward to hearing from you.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/c...

Yours faithfully,

Mike Morgan

Dear Ministry of Defence,

In early January 2021 I sent the following application to you:

The MOD and the RAF have long maintained that they do not investigate UAP/UFO sightings unless there is a risk or danger to the defence of the United Kingdom. Bearing this in mind, have they changed their minds/protocols in light of the fact that the US Government and The Pentagon have recently admitted to the AATIP (Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification program) and disclosed to the world images from US Navy aircraft of confirmed UAP's?

In addition, has the MOD or any of its agencies or the RAF been involved, assisted or collaborated with AATIP in its investigations and if they have what are these details?

In addition, with the signing of the Pandemic Bill this week by President Trump and the requirement of the US Intelligence agencies to provide within 180 days details of “Observed airborne objects that have not been identified” which should include “Detailed analysis of unidentified phenomena data collected by a). geo-spatial intelligence; b). signals intelligence; c). human intelligence and d). measurement and signals intelligence,” to the Senate Defence Intelligence Committee; will the British MOD/RAF and HM Government consider something similar?

The report to the Senate must also contain, “A detailed analysis of data which was derived from investigations of intrusions of unidentified aerial phenomena data over restricted United States airspace … and an assessment of whether this unidentified aerial phenomena’s activity may be attributed to one or more foreign adversaries.” Does the UK not consider this for our security and if not why not?

Having received no reply, on the 4th March I asked for an update......still no reply.

On the 1st April, I asked for a managerial review of my application and over a month later, I have still had no response. As previously stated, I am aware that Covid has led to reduced staff and home working, but I am sure a large important organisation like the MOD could have made some response by now?

Please can you respond, if I do not hear anything I will consider reporting this to the Information Commissioners Office as a breach of the FOI Act (which says there should be a response within 20 days).

I look forward to your response.

MS Morgan
