Dear Porter, Angela,

Thank you for your reply, in which you confirm there are in fact 2 documents relevant to my enquiry.

The first is an 8 page document dated October 2000 and with reference SSR / TRL / MIS14.

The second is a 120 page document dated November 2000 and with reference PRT / T / 125 / 2000.

I would like PDF copies of both documents please.

That would be in addition to a PDF copy of the latest report, which has reference PR / T / 006 / 03.

Yours sincerely,

James Mason

Dear Porter, Angela,

I am disappointed that after 2 weeks, no further reply has been received.

Please confirm when the information will be provided, as you are required to provide it promptly, and in any event within 20 working days, which period has now elapsed.

Yours sincerely,

James Mason

Porter, Angela,

Dear Mr Mason,

Please accept my apologies on behalf of Tim Lyver, Project Manager, for the delay in responding in full to your request for information on the Suspension of the M4 Bus Lane. The complexity and volume of the requested information and the current position surrounding the issues of the M4 Bus Lane mean that it is impracticable for us to give a full response within the original 20 days. For this reason it is necessary for us to extend the deadline under Regulation 7 (1) of the Environmental Information Regulations and we hope to have a response to you by 26 November.

Regards,

Angela

Dear Highways Agency,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Highways Agency's handling of my FOI request 'M4 Bus Lane - Monitoring of the First Year Report'.

I note your reply, however all I have asked for is copies of 3 reports which are already in existence.

2 of these reports have been in existence for several years.

All that is required is to provide copies of these reports in PDF format.

Hence I do not understand or accept the first part of your substantive sentence:

"The complexity and volume of the requested information".

I fail to see why:

"the current position surrounding the issues of the M4 Bus Lane" is relevant,

and I am concerned that it suggests that political manipulation might be involved.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address:
http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/m4...

Yours faithfully,

James Mason
