Dear Foreign and Commonwealth Office,

I was wondering if you could tell me the names and grades of staff who visited Dublin for work related business in the calender years of 2011, 2012 and to date in 2013.

I was also wondering if you would breakdown each staff member costs for the visit eg: Flights, accommodation, food, other transport costs and so on

I assume its the FCO to seek vouched receipts be supplied in order for staff members to recoup work related expenses

The number of staff who failed to provide vouched receipts for work related expenses but were still able to claim expenses; if so why and the amount of same.

Yours Faithfully
Ms Ashley Davis

Dear Ms Davis

Thank you for your email to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office requesting information under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

Please could you clarify the scope of your request.  As currently drafted your request would go over the statutory limit set under the FOIA and we would be unable to proceed with it.

Would it be possible for you to refine your request?  E.g. by reason for the visit?

We will then accept your revised request and establish whether we hold any information relating to it before considering the appropriate course of action.

Kind Regards
Information Rights Team
