Dear Cabinet Office,

Thank you for the information you have sent through which is very
useful and answers several elements of my initial request. I am
however requesting an internal review as I feel there is more
information that could be provided to me within the scope of my
original request.

1. I note that you have interpreted my request as relating to the
'honours system that produces the Prime Minister's biannual honours
list'. I ask that you interpret my request more generally to
include all UK honours. This should include information you hold
about the system surrounding honours awarded by the Queen in any
capacity and honours awarded by any other UK public official or UK
public body.(You can regard this email as a separate FOI request if
necessary).

2. You have not provided details of the legal basis for all the
honours committees [please refer back to my original request]. In
each case I was expecting to be referred to a specific statute or
else told that the committee was established by royal prerogative.

3. You provided terms of reference for just one of the the honours
committees when this requested for each committee. [please refer
back to my original request] If there are any committees without
any terms of reference please let me know that this is the case.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is
available on the Internet at this address:

thank you

John

Dear Cabinet Office,
In your last email you wrote "One way of refining your request
would be too focus on one of the four types of honours you have
listed in your request."

Please could you therefore restrict your search to civic honours.

Yours faithfully,

John Cross
