Dear Welsh Government,

Please provide details of the financial support agreed with TVR to create 150 jobs in Ebbw Vale.

I do not want any details of TVR's business plan, financial situation, or anything commercially confidential. I would just like you to provide details of:

a.) How much money Welsh Government is projected to spend on supporting TVR (please include both capital expenditure, and grant funding, as well as details on any infrastructure upgrades agreed and their associated costs).
b.) The projected number of jobs that this investment will create.
c.) A copy of any cost/benefit analysis on this invesment. If it is necessary to redact sections of this due to commercial confidentiality- please do so.

Yours faithfully,

Thomas Gallard

Dear Welsh Government,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Welsh Government's handling of my FOI request 'Financial Support agreed with TVR'.

In Annex A you state

"TVR is a private company that is currently undergoing a complex and sensitive equity raising process, the projected spend from WG is part of this process and if were to disclose the figure it would place TVR at a commercial disadvantage when in negotiations with other investors"

I would like you to review this argument. I believe that any potential investor in TVR would demand to see exact details of WG spend as part of their due-diligence.

I would also like you to rethink "investors should not be influenced by how much Welsh
Government has decided to spend" . Undoubtedly investors will (and should!) be influenced by how much the Welsh Government has decided to spend (if there was no prospect of Welsh Government spending helping to leverage private sector spending, then why was the money invested in the first place?)

A useful analogue to consider in your review is FS50448552 (Sunderland City Council)-here the ICO concluded that in general grant funding would be seen in a positive light by potential customers, suppliers and investors.

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

Yours faithfully,

Thomas Gallard
