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 'Embassy meeting'. These international discussions are absolutely 100% in the public interest to know basic details about events involving this important ally and this basic information should at the very least be provided. Highly sensitive information can always be redacted. It is outrageous to give a blanket refusal in the case of all these requests. Please could you reconsider and review.
