Alan

I don't understand your request. When you say 'decisions', are you talking about editorial decisions made by reporters, editors or executive producers?

Dear Alan

There are no documents in our possession which refer to decisions about reporting on Julian Assange or information made available through Wikileaks.

Section 18(e) of the Act therefore applies.
