Dear Dave,

No offence taken at all. The number of times I get confused with a certain futures trader means I'm immune. :-)

Yours sincerely,

Dear University of East Anglia,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of University of East Anglia's handling of my FOI request 'CRU confidentiality agreements'.

To say the data is available, and then state that the site on which it can be found is not online is more than a farce. It's an out and out failure to supply the information.

As such I would like a internal review for the failure to release the document to me. In addition I would like an investigation as to the deliberate withholding of the information.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address:

Yours faithfully,

Nick Leaton

Palmer Dave Mr (LIB), University of East Anglia

The University is closed 24 December 2009 to 3 January 2010 inclusive. I will deal with all correspondence upon my return to the office on Monday 4 January 2010.
