Dear Haynes Christopher,

Many thanks for your response to this request for information. Unfortunately, I believe it was answered by yourself in error. The original request was submitted to the Home Office, rather than to the Migration Advisory Committee Secretariat specifically. I would be very grateful if you would pass this request onto the Home Office team that deals with Freedom of Information requests, so that it can be answered by them rather than by the MAC which is, I note, an independent pubic body.

Yours sincerely,

Mary Atkinson
