Dear Harvey Walker

Thank you for your email received on 27/11/2019 requesting the following
information: access to the United Kingdom wartime broadcasting
instruction, commonly nicknamed "The War Book".

I am treating your correspondence as a request for information under the
Freedom of Information Act 2000.

The Ministry of Defence requires further information in order to determine
whether it holds any information within the scope of your request. In
particular, it would be useful to know the likely time period of the
information you require.

Once you have clarified your request, I will be pleased to consider it
again.

Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future
communications.

If you are not satisfied with this response or you wish to complain about
any aspect of the handling of your request, then you should contact us in
the first instance at the address above. If informal resolution is not
possible and you are still dissatisfied then you may apply for an
independent internal review by contacting the Information Rights
Compliance team, Ground Floor, MOD Main Building, Whitehall, SW1A 2HB
(e-mail [email address]). Please note that any request for an internal
review must be made within 40 working days of the date on which the
attempt to reach informal resolution has come to an end.

If you remain dissatisfied following an internal review, you may take your
complaint to the Information Commissioner under the provisions of Section
50 of the Freedom of Information Act. Please note that the Information
Commissioner will not normally investigate your case until the MOD
internal review process has been completed. Further details of the role
and powers of the Information Commissioner can be found on the
Commissioner's website, http://www.ico.org.uk.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr Walker,

 

Thank you for contacting us.    We have checked the relevant email
accounts and can confirm that your clarified request of 3 December 2019
was not received by the Ministry of Defence.  This was due to the fact
that your reply was sent via the automated email address with which the
MOD response was sent on 2 December and it failed on this occasion. 

 

We have booked in your clarified request today with the reference number
FOI2020/02631, with a target date of 25 March. 

 

Apologies for any inconvenience.  Please contact us again should you be
dissatisfied with the substantive response when you receive it.

 

Yours sincerely,
