Dear FOImanager,

Further to your letter I can confirm that I only wish to view correspondence between the Met Office (and subsidiaries) and the IPCC in relation to AR4.

This would include any correspondence by any employees of the Met Office (and subsidiaries) who were part of the IPCC working groups, in addition to review comments. If the employees were there in a private capacity, and were attending whilst on annual or unpaid leave, then these would not be subject to this request.

Yours sincerely,

James Snowdome
