Correspondence between the Cabinet Office and Members of Parliament pertaining to the CEEB

The request was successful.

Dear Cabinet Office,

I understand that you take the lead in certain policy areas does climate legislation form one of these?

The Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill was an Early Day Motion (EDM) tabled on 2 September 2020. A subsequent Private Members Bill, titled the Climate and Ecology Bill was sponsored by Caroline Lucas MP and introduced in the House of Commons on 2 November 2020.

Please can you provide me with official and unofficial correspondence between your office and members of Parliament pertaining to The Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill or the Climate and Ecology Bill.

I would like to understand the guidance or advice that you have provided to Members of Parliament who are asking whether or not they should support the bill. Or, requesting help or clarification pertaining to the bill or it's content.

If it is the case that you do not provide guidance or correspond directly with MPs on this subject. Please can you provide the indirect correspondence whether via ministers or other parties.

Yours faithfully,
Richard Price

Dear Richard Price,

I am writing with regards to your request for information under the
Freedom of Information Act 2000, which was received on 21st November.

We have given consideration to your request and have concluded that we
require further clarification as to what you are requesting before we are
able to proceed.

As you have asked for correspondence between MPs and 'your office', can
you clarify whose office you are referring to?

As you may appreciate, a public authority has 20 working days in which to
respond to a request for information. The effect of a public authority
seeking clarity from a requester about their request is to 'stop the
clock' on that 20 working day deadline. It will not be started again until
we are supplied with the further information which we require. In the
event that we do not hear from you we will assume that you do not wish to
proceed with your request.

Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future
communications.

Yours sincerely,

Freedom of Information Team
