Dear Sir or Madam,

Please can you tell me how I obtain the following information:

1. How many FOI requests have been made of central government and
if the subjects of their requests are available in a list?

2. How much public money is provided to opposition parties, which
ones and what format does this funding take?

3. Where can details of people on the 'civil list' be found and
details of the money they receive from the public purse (excluding
the Queen and close relatives) and has their been any recent
reviews of curtailing the extent of the civil list?

Yours faithfully,

David Hall.

Dear Mr Hall,

Thank you for your emails (attached).

I will answer all questions in this email as best as I can.

How many FOI requests have been made of central government BY THE LIBERAL
DEMOCRACTS and if the subjects of their requests are available in a list?

The Ministry of Justice are best placed to answer this request as they
hold central information regarding Freedom of Information requests. We
will only hold requests that are received by the Cabinet Office. I suggest
you get in touch with the MoJ at the following link;

How much public money is provided to opposition parties, which ones and
what format does this funding take?

Financial assistance provided to opposition parties is commonly known as
"short money" and the parliamentary website has information published on
their website, see link below;

Where can details of people on the 'civil list' be found and details of
the money they receive from the public purse (excluding the Queen and
close relatives) and has their been any recent reviews of curtailing the
extent of the civil list?

Details about the Civil list can be found at the link below;
