Dear Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust's handling of my FOI request 'Infected Blood Inquiry Corr and Steps'.

In relation to Section 32(1)(a) and (b) and section 32(1)(c) under which you have perhaps applied exemptions. This is not applicable. This is because these provisions relate to Courts and Court proceedings, of which the Inquiry is neither. Further, the information is not held ONLY by this virtue.

You may find it helpful to know that the Inquiry recently published guidance which itself states that "An inquiry is not a trial and (unlike a trial) the role of the Chair is not to decide between rival cases".

An exemption under Section 32(2) would also not be applicable because the information is not held ONLY by this virtue.

Yours faithfully,

JJ Evans

FOITeam, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust
