Economic impact of military action on Syria

The request was partially successful.

Dear Foreign and Commonwealth Office,

1. What economic impact assessments have been made about the consequences of any US, British or French military strike on Syria? Please share any official documents or correspondance relating to this matter.

2. What actions are being recommended across Government to mitigate the economic consequences of any military action?

3. Are oil prices anticipated to rise in the event of any strike, and what measures are being taken to minimise the impact of any such rise?

Yours faithfully,

Stephen Cockburn

Dear Foreign and Commonwealth Office,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Foreign and Commonwealth Office's handling of my FOI request 'Economic impact of military action on Syria'.

I am still awaiting information on this request. The information does exist, and I was promised a response by 08 November. This information should form part of a public debate about military intervention, and thus should be part of the public domain.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/e...

Yours faithfully,

Dear Foreign and Commonwealth Office,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Foreign and Commonwealth Office's handling of my FOI request 'Economic impact of military action on Syria'.

I am unhappy with the response provided to my information request. While I am told that no information has been withheld, I have been provided only with 1 paragraph relating to oil prices from an annex of a document.

I find it extremely unlikely that no other economic or cost analysis was undertaken when the Government was considering whether or not to undertake a major military intervention.

This information is very relevant to public debate on a major issue of public concern and should surely be made available.

Please have this request reviewed by another member of the Department not involved in the original request. I will otherwise be sending the request to the Information Commissioner for investigation.

Many thanks for your cooperation.

Best wishes, Steve
