From: Steve Elibank

20 January 2010

Dear Sir/Madam,

Please treat this as a request under the Freedom of Information Act
2000.

Do you hold electronic, hi-resolution photographs of all your
ministers? (Perhaps the ones on their security-passes?)

If 'yes', under what circumstances would you consider releasing any
or all of the said photos to the public?

Yours faithfully,

Steve Elibank

Dear Diane;

Thank-you for your reply. I assume that you misunderstood my
initial request, which specifically regarded high-resolution
photographs (this is obviously not exempt under Section 21, as
there are no such images available online as far as I am aware).

I look forward to receiving a full response within the statutory
time-limit.

Yours,
Steve Elibank

Yours sincerely,

Steve Elibank

Dear Ms Duffy,

So far, at least six other government departments have been able to
email the attachments, usually sending each in a separate message.
Some of these images were up to 5MB in size. Is it genuinely
impossible for you to use an online method of communication?

Yours sincerely,
Steve Elibank

Unfortunately the size of one of the photos is 35MB - and we have several of these to send.
We are prepared to send the information via disk, hence why I require your address in this instance.

Thanks
Diane
