Dear Mr Coton,

 

Thank you for your email requesting information under the Freedom of

Please see the attached response.

 

Kind regards,

Dear People-Sec-FOI Mailbox (MULTIUSER),

Thank You for your response dated 16th March 2021.

To clarify my original request, whilst I am primarily seeking the 'Medal Regulations for the Cadet Forces Medal dated 8 December 2020', I am also secondarily requesting the latest copy of JSP 814.

As you have stated that the latest copy of JSP 814 (May 2019) does not contain the requested regulations, but will do so at the next revision in a few weeks time, I would kindly ask that you provide the regulations separately if immediately available and a copy of the newly published JSP 814 once its has been revised.

I hope this sufficiently clarifies my original request, if it does not then please feel free to contact me further.

Yours sincerely,

Mr R Coton

Dear People-Sec-FOI Mailbox (MULTIUSER),

I wrote to you on the 17 February 2021 with my original FOI request here: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/j...

You then wrote to me on the 16 March 2021, requesting that I clarify my request, which I did so here: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/j...

By law, I should've received a response promptly and within 20 working days of my clarification and no later than the 15 April 2021.

It appears that this request is now overdue and in breach of the law. Can you please clarify why there has been a delay in this request and respond within 7 working days of the original deadline (26 April 2021) or I shall exercise my right to refer this for an internal review.

Yours sincerely,

Mr R Coton

Dear Ministry of Defence,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Ministry of Defence's handling of my FOI request 'JSP 814 Policy and Regulations for MOD Sponsored Cadet Organisations'.

I wrote to you on 17 February 2021 with my original request here: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/j... which I felt was sufficiently clear in what I was looking for.

You responded on the 16 March 2021 requesting further clarification here: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/j..., which I responded to on the 16 March 2021.

By law, you should have responded promptly and no later than 20 working days after my clarification which was Thursday, 15 April 2021.

Having received no response from you by this deadline, I sent a follow up message on the 19 April 2021, informing you that this request was now in breach of the law and asked that you respond to my request within 7 working days (Wednesday, 28 April 2021), stating the reason for delay.

Having received no such message and having given notice of my intention to file an internal review. I am now writing to request this, given that as at this date (1 May 2021), I have still had no response.

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