Henry,

This is what you call the usual 'Cop-out' by the MoD.
It is my experience when they want to conceal evidence their usual answer is 'We do not have that information'. As far as the nuclear tests are concerned, we are informed everything was meticulouly recorded.

They are either lying about the meticulous recordings or they are lying when they say they do not have the information requested.

All the best

Hello Mr Gledhill.

 

I note your email from yesterday in which you described the response we
provided to your request for information as superficial.

 

The subject line of your email contained the words ‘internal review’ but
you did not explicitly request an internal of the response. I am assuming
that you would like an internal review of the response but would
appreciate your confirmation first. If you confirm that this is the case
and provide your reasons why you are dissatisfied with the response we
will begin the review.

 

Many Thanks
SPVA Secretariat.

Dear SPVA-Secretariat Group (MULTIUSER),Please refer for internal review.
Your reply was less than adequate

Yours sincerely,

henry gledhill

Don't forget guys when the MoD says 'We do not hold the information requested' then you know this is the *absolute* truth

Dear SPVA-Sec Asst TL1b (Hoad, Jonathan C2),

Thank you for your reply.
May I remind you that when Jack Ashley MP asked the same question- details of war pensions partly attributable to Britain's nuclear tests- he received details of such illnesses from the then Minister Gillian Shepherd MP.
Can you advise why that was possible then but not now.

Yours sincerely,

henry gledhill

Dear SPVA-Sec Asst TL1b (Hoad, Jonathan C2),

Dear Mr Gledhill,

 

Thank you for your further email.

 

As our letter of 21 January explained we are not currently conducting an
internal review

 

The subject line of your initial email contained the words ‘internal
review’ and you described the response as ‘superficial’ but you did not
explicitly request an internal of the response or explain what aspect you
wished reviewing.

Dear SPVA-Secretariat Group (MULTIUSER), Please refer to Internal Review based on my previous Jack Ashley MP
disclosure.

Yours sincerely,

Dear SPVA-Secretariat Group (MULTIUSER)
Please confirm that following your failure to respond to my "Jack Ashley MP "request, you are still not referring to Internal Review?
Should this be so the matter will be referred to CIO.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr Gledhill,

 

If you can supply the Jack Ashley material you wish to be updated, or a
date or a reference or a web address, for it, I would be happy to consider
this as further request but I cannot comment on material I have no
knowledge of.

 

The decision to refer your request for an independent internal review by
the Department’s Information Rights Compliance team is one for the
requestor.  This can be done by e-mailing them at [email address].
