Dear Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy,

I understand that your department has take over from what was the Department of Trade and Industry in the 1980's, through various incarnations.

I am researching broadcasting history and looking for information held on the offshore "pirate" radio stations Radio Caroline and Radio Laser 558/576 during the 1980's. This information would have been held by the Dept' of Trade and Industry at that time.

There are no records held by the UK National Archives from this period, and the present Dept' of Culture, Media and Sport does not hold these records either.

I am hoping that you are the correct authority, and look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Chris Edwards
