Retained record FO 1016/469 by the Foreign Office

Ali Al-Jamri made this Freedom of Information request to Foreign and Commonwealth Office

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 successful.

Dear Foreign and Commonwealth Office,

I would like to enquire as to why the record FO 1016/469, 1956, has been retained under Section 3.4 of the Public Records Act.

The record in question is apparently Part 5 of a 6-part series of records titled Bahrain: Internal Political Situation, 1956. Part 4 (FO 1016/468) and 5 (FO 1016/470) are openly available, but Part 5 is not.

Yours faithfully,

Ali Al-Jamri

Dear Foreign and Commonwealth Office,

It has been two months since I sent my request, which by law should have been answered in late July. I am still waiting on your response.

Yours faithfully,

As your reply today is the first message I have received from the FCO, I have not even been given a reference number.
