Dear UKTI,

While I appreciate that some of the information I requested might be covered by Section 43(2) of the Freedom of Information Act, I consider it very unlikely that all of the information I requested is. I would like an internal review of your decision not to release any of the information I asked for within the required time.

Yours sincerely,

Guy Freeman
