This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was refused by Post Office Limited.

Dear Post Office Limited,

On 21st March 2019, POL issued an application to recuse Mr Justice Fraser, the High Court Judge presiding over the Group Litigation.

On what date did the POL Board and/or GLO Committee take the decision to pursue this course of action? Was a UKGI representative present at the time? Were any more senior departmental representatives present at the meeting, if so please can you identify them. Did POL seek ministerial approval before its application to recuse the Judge?

Please release minutes of this meeting.

On 9th April 2019, POL delivered an appeal against the Judge’s refusal to recuse himself. Which UKGI/BEIS representatives attended the Board/GLO Committee meeting at which this further action was authorised?

Please release minutes of this meeting.

Yours faithfully,
Eleanor Shaikh
