Dear [redacted],

Kindly forward a copy of your file on your investigation into my complaint concerning the MHRA's regulatory activities for [redacted]'s attention, please, as the Office appears to have strict lines of demarcation, when it comes to investigating concerns over flim-flam, fraud and cover-up. Please feel free to reply by saying that you have no obligation to assist the Office, or me.

Best regards

Case Reference Number FS50180689

Dear Mr Holford

Thank you for your correspondence dated 7 November 2007 in relation to your complaint about the MHRA.

As the regulator of the legislation, our remit is to determine a public authority’s compliance and we can only act where information supplied to us shows evidence of a breach. The Information Commissioner does not request information from public authorities on behalf of individuals.

Therefore, as stated in our correspondence dated 7 November 2007, before we can progress complaints about the refusal to release information we need to be provided with copies of the following:

· Your initial request for information
· The public authority’s initial response
· Your request for a review (where appropriate)
· The public authority‘s review of their decision (where appropriate)

We require these documents as:

 it provides us with a full set of unedited evidence in support of the complaint
 it is necessary to provide a copy of the initial request to the public authority when we first notify them of having received a complaint

Your case will remain closed until we receive the documents we have requested. You should only send documents that are directly relevant to your complaint. If you send too many or irrelevant documents, we may return the documents to you and ask you to sort out and return only the relevant ones.

Please quote the reference number at the top of this letter in all further correspondence regarding this matter.

Yours sincerely
