Dear Sir or Madam,

Following on from my FOI request of 28 January 2009(http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/mv..., I would be grateful if you could answer the following questions:

Does the Department hold any correspondence or any other information, in recorded form, referring, in any way, to the website http://mv-derbyshire.blogspot.com or to any of the issues raised/materials published thereon?
If yes, could you please provide us with details and copies of that information?

Yours faithfully,

Daniela Drysdale

Dear Adam Paine,

Thank you for partly responding to my FOI request of 10 February 2009.

You argue therein that it would be burdensome and time-consuming to locate and extract all the information held by the Department, which specifically relates to the issues raised at http://mv-derbyshire.blogspot.com, because that information, you then claim, covers a broad range of issues: "everything which relates to MV Derbyshire in general".

Well, this is, in my view, a rather self-contradictory argument.

The above mentioned website was started on 12 October 2008 (i.e. five months ago), and includes, so far, only six articles, which focus on a small number of MV Derbyshire-related issues.

Many other public authorities, including your good selves on a number of occasions, have complied with similar requests from the public at no cost and without much excitement.

I would therefore suggest that you could, without much exertion, check your electronic and paper records on the subject of MV Derbyshire, from October 2008 onwards, and kindly provide us with the requested information without further delay and unjustified cost objections.

(Please also check our reply to the MCA about a similar FOI request, which gives helpful advice on how to retrieve the solicited information: http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/mv...

Yours sincerely,

Daniela Drysdale

Dear Dear Mr Woodman,

Thank you for your response to my request for an internal review in respect of the FOI application above.

Whilst I do not agree with your justification for not releasing the information, I would still like to take advantage of your declared willingness to reconsider my request (if I wished to narrow it) and ask you to provide me with all the information on the MV Derbyshire, which is NOT concerned "with the organisation and execution of a half-day event on behalf of the Derbyshire Family Association (DFA)", and which has been recorded by the Department since October 2008.

This should be a less onerous task for the DfT since, as you yourself have advised, the material held by the Department concerns largely, but not exclusively, that November popularisation event.

Yours sincerely,

Daniela Drysdale

Dear Mr Woodman,

I would be grateful if you could reply to or at least acknowledge receipt of the above message sent to you on 21 August 2009.

Yours faithfully,

Daniela Drysdale
