Dear Foi Officer,

The Chair's action form is not complete. Could I have these documents. These will I anticipate also relate to his decision of October 2008 and this will be identified.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr Carruthers

The only item I didn't send was the revised publication scheme itself. This is exactly the same as the one that now appears on our website - so the information is available to you.

I don't understand your reference to his decision of October 2008. The publication scheme was approved by Chair's action in January 2009.

Yours sincerely

Dear Foi Officer,

The Chair of the CLAE through his own action removed the Code of Access to Information from the CLAE Code of Conduct. The new publication scheme again approved by the Chair of the CLAE merely meets the minimum requirements of the ICO.

The ICO's requirements have been published since April 2008.. hardly an urgent decision ?

Yours sincerely,

Stuart Hardwicke CARRUTHERS
