Dear Ministry of Defence,

I am writing to make an open government request under the Freedom of Information Act.

In order to assist you with this request, I am outlining my query as specifically as possible.

However, if this request is too wide or too unclear, I would be grateful if you could contact me – as I understand that under the act, you are required to advise and assist requesters.

I would like to know if there is currently any monitoring taking place of the nuclear waste disposed of at Chatham Docks in Pier Road, Gillingham.

I would also like to know if any work has been undertaken to ascertain whether Carbon 14 is present in the waste. If this is the case, I would like details of the work, the levels of Carbon 14 detected (if indeed there is any) and what the current situation is.

I understand that under the act, I should be entitled to a response within 20 working days. I would be grateful if you could confirm in writing that you have received this request.

I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

Yours faithfully,
Alan

Dear Ministry of Defence,

I sent a Freedom of Information request on June 3, which you should have, by law, replied to by July 1.

Can you update me on the status of my request and why I have yet to receive a response?

Yours faithfully,
Alan

As former Head of Radiation protection at the MOD, I am not aware of any effort made by the MOD to look at Carbon 14 apart from waste streams sent to Drigg. The MOD is only prepared to address issues that impact on the delivery of operational capability. So historic issues such as carbon 14 in waste buried at Chatham have been neglected.
