Tony Blair / 'Institute on Religion and Public Policy'

William Thackeray made this Freedom of Information request to Prime Minister's Office

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

Prime Minister's Office did not have the information requested.

Dear Prime Minister’s Office,

This is an FOIA query concerning the Blair government.

A body named 'The Institute on Religion and Public Policy' claims to have been "consulted by Tony Blair on Inter-religious dialogue issues".

Do you have any record of this?

Yours faithfully,

William Thackeray

Prime Minister's Office

Dear Prime Minister’s Office,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Prime Minister’s Office's handling of my FOI request 'Tony Blair / 'Institute on Religion and Public Policy''.

My reason for requesting an internal review is:

- The request has been rejected as lacking policy context, but this is incorrect: it is clearly in the context of inter-faith dialogue (as stated in the original request).

- A search limited to electronic (rather than paper) records would be acceptable.

- Guidance from the public authority on ways in which the request could be further restricted in scope would be appreciated, and would be consistent with the public authority's statutory obligation to 'advise and assist' FOIA requestors.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address:

Many thanks.

Yours faithfully,

William Thackeray

Prime Minister's Office

Tony Blair now runs his own Faith Foundation charity. If his contact with this Institute occurred after he stood down as PM then the Government will have no record of it as it will have occurred in a private capacity.
