Dear Robert Clarke,

I do, but I'm not going to post it publicly here, and the site has hidden your email address from me as well... I do see your phone number so I can try and give you a call later in the week, but I'm tied up for the next couple of days unfortunately.

Happy to respond asynchronously here in the meantime if you can give some more detail on what clarifications you need.

Yours sincerely,

Matt Brown

Thank you Matt. I have found four key documents (e.g. briefings to the Minister) and I wanted to ask whether they would suffice or if, by your reference to 'correspondence', you also wanted me to find any internal emails that mention the review. (There are no letters / emails to external parties that I can find). Going through internal emails can be a major exercise.

My email address is [email address]

Dear Robert Clarke,

I imagine the briefings would be an excellent start - how about we get those posted and then I can always submit a further follow-up or come back to you with further clarifications if required.

Fundamentally I'm just trying to get some info on where things are at and why it's taking so long to report back.

Yours sincerely,

Matt Brown

Okay. I will get to work to see what if anything needs to be redacted from those documents.
