The request was partially successful.

Dear Meteorological Office,

I request copies of all recorded information on correspondence between the Met Office and IPCC Working Group One (WGI) in relation to the 4 documents described below which were sent to the Met Office by WGI. In particular I wish to see any correspondence requesting the under-mentioned documents, accompanying them or discussing the issues that could have given rise to the documents. The likely email addresses of WGI will include [email address]

[1] Undated AR5 WGI document at: https://www.ipcc-wg1.unibe.ch/guidancepa...
The pdf properties of this file indicate its creation on 30 August 2011. It is unlikely that any respondent information will be found earlier than May 2011 or later than December 2011.

[2] AR5 WGI letter dated 12 September 2013
[3] AR5 WGI letter dated 21 October 2013
[4] AR5 WGI letter dated 23 January 2014

Letters [2] – [4] where disclosed at WhatDoTheyKnow.com as:
https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/2...

It is unlikely that any respondent information regarding letters [2]-[4]will be found earlier than June 2013 or later than March 2014.

Yours faithfully,

David Holland

Dear Meteorological Office,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of the Meteorological Office's handling of my FOI request 'Info Relating to AR5 WGI Document and Letters'.

I am grateful for what you have disclosed, but must ask that you reconsider the redaction of the sending and receiving institutions by obliterating the email server addresses. I believe that to satisfy the the DPA it is only necessary to redact the user name. Also I believe that you should not redact the job titles of high profile individuals such as Co-Chairs who are shown on the IPCC website.
