Dear Department for Exiting the European Union,

I would like to make a request for information under the FOI Act.

1) The Guardian reported that David Davis attended a conference at Oxford University in September 2016. I understand Legatum representatives were present. Regarding this, I would like:

- A full list of those that attended (including names of MPs, legal and trade experts, as referred to by the Guardian)
- Reports, leaflets and pamphlets that were given out in the conference
- A schedule of the conference
- Emails between DExEU and the Legatum Institute about this conference at Oxford University

2) On the Legatum Institute website, David Davis spoke at a Legatum Institute conference in January 2017. Regarding this, I would like:

- A full list of those that attended
- Reports, leaflets and pamphlets that were given out in the conference
- A schedule of the conference
- Emails between DExEU and the Legatum Institute about this conference in January 2017 (as well as subsequent correspondence relating to this event)
- Whether Davis received and accepted a fee for speaking at the conference. If so, please state how much.

3) Please state whether DExEU ministers (past and present) have attended other conferences/events/seminars where Legatum representatives were present, or where the Legatum Institute hosted such conferences/events/seminars. For each one, I would like:

- The date and location of the conference/event/seminar
- Which DExEU minister attended
- A description of the conference/event/seminar

Thank-you.

Dear Department for Exiting the European Union,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Department for Exiting the European Union's handling of my FOI request 'DExEU ministers attendance at events where Legatum representatives were present'.

I am disappointed that officials judged that my initial request would breach the cost threshold.

However, if after review, that this is judged to be correct, then I would be happy to proceed by removing question 3 from my request.

I look forward to hearing from you in due course.

Yours faithfully,

Ally Tibbitt
