Dear Steve Elibank,

Our Ref: FOI 2/12

Thank you for your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 dated 8 January 2012 (received by the Electoral Commission on 9 January 2012).

The Commission aims to respond to requests for information promptly and has done so within the statutory timeframe of twenty working days.

Your request is in bold below followed by our response.

You have requested:

Please provide me with an electronic copy of all correspondence between the Electoral Commission and eBay. I understand from the media http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2005/... that such correspondence exists.

Our response is as follows:

Enclosed is a letter (Attachment 1) from Peter Wardle, Chief Executive of the Electoral Commission to Douglas McCallum, Managing Director of eBay (UK) Limited on 12 April 2005.

Also enclosed is a reply (Attachment 2) to Mr Wardle's letter from Robert Miller, Senior Director for Legal and External Affairs for eBay (UK) Limited dated 25 April 2005.

Also enclosed for your information are two versions of a Word document titled 'ea06-07a' (Attachment 3)

and 'Ebay letter' (Attachment 4).

These are draft versions of a letter dated March 2006 written to be sent by Peter Wardle to Robert Miller in advance of the May 2006 elections. I should emphasise, however, that our correspondence records do not show whether or not either of these drafts were actually sent to Mr Miller.

I trust that this information satisfies your request. If you are not satisfied with this response, please note that the Commission operates a review procedure, details of which can be found on the Commission website at: http://www.electoralcommission.org.uk/ab...

Please also note that if you have exhausted all internal Commission review procedures and you are still not satisfied you have the right to appeal to the Information Commissioner. Details of this procedure can be found on the ICO website: http://www.ico.gov.uk

Yours sincerely

DWCreighton
