Dear Committee on Radioactive Waste Management,

I am writing to request an internal review of Committee on Radioactive Waste Management's handling of my FOI request 'Provision of advice on GDF Investigation and Costings to CoRWM by Mark Kirkbride'.

On the 7th August I requested the following information:
I request sight of all advice compiled by Mark Kirkbride on the following:
1. Methods of investigation, and the timescale for carrying out site selection.
2. All Costings as advised by Mark Kirkbride to date.

1. CoRWM has replied denying that the authority holds this information despite Mark Kirkbride's remit as CoRWM member to provide the authority with "Methods of investigation, and the timescale for carrying out (GDF) site selection."

2. Costings provided by Mark Kirkbride on the draft report have been revealed as far back as 2020 (or earlier) to PHD students. Given that public 'partnerships' advised by CoRWM are underway for hosting a GDF, the public have a right to full sight of all Mark Kirkbride's draft costings of construction scenarios, to date. https://www.research.manchester.ac.uk/po...

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/p...

Yours faithfully,

Marianne Birkby
