Dear Attorney General’s Office,

The Magna Carta 1297 in 'Confirmation of Liberties' ,SI states
{amongst other things} "We have granted also, and given to all the
Freemen of our Realm, for Us and our Heirs for ever, these
Liberties under-written, to have and to hold to them and their
Heirs, of Us and our Heirs for ever"

In addition, in SXXIX 'Imprisonment, &c. contrary to Law.
Administration of Justice' it states "NO Freeman shall be taken or
imprisoned, or be disseised of his Freehold, or Liberties, or free
Customs, or be outlawed, or exiled, or any other wise destroyed;
nor will We not pass upon him, nor [X1condemn him,] but by lawful
judgment of his Peers, or by the Law of the Land. We will sell to
no man, we will not deny or defer to any man either Justice or
Right."

Therefore, in accordance with the FOI Act, please provide me with
your definition of "Freemen" as mentioned in this act.

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

Sarah Goldsmith

James Ross, Attorney General’s Office

Dear Ms Goldsmith

Thank you for your email to the Attorney General's Office making a
request under the Freedom of Information Act.

However your request is not one asking for information as defined by the
Act and is actually a request for this office to give a definition, this
constitutes as a request for advice.

As you maybe aware the Attorney General is principal legal advisor to
government and as such is unable to offer any legal advice, assistance
or support to individuals, in relation to the questions of advice you
have posed, I am afraid we are unable to assist.

Yours sincerely

James Ross
Freedom of Information Officer
