Dear DES SEC-PolSecShips and Subs (MULTIUSER),

Thank you for your reply. Before I consider referring for Internal Review and onwards to ICO please answer the following.
Bearing in mind my question related to British Nuclear Test Records-- your reply centred on "Defence Applications of Nuclear Energy.
ICI 99, of which you provided scant details, is of interest in that it holds records of The British nuclear Tests and for which you provided no release details.
Studying past and currently on-going Veterans vs MOD Tribunals etc It is clear that MOD salaried legal staff and privately engaged barristers and their staff representing MOD produce documents, presumably from AWE, that have never been produced to the veterans or their legal counsel-- should they be fortunate enough to have one.
If you unable or prevented from disclosing when ACNRA will be persuaded to release these, now over 60 year old documents, then please refer for Internal Review.

Yours sincerely,

rex young
