subject: [Fwd: FW: Freedom of Information request - Climate data

FYI below - another request!

Back to your request..

I talked to Thomas last night and am seeing Renate Christ
today. I've just drafted a short note to give her with some
of Dave's points. I'm asking to see if we can get an IPCC response.
Thomas has spoken to her, and he has also talked to some Swiss
Lawyers he knows through the University in Bern and also at WMO.

Whether we will get something in time is an issue. Renate is
off for the whole of August, but will be back in Geneva next week.
I'll warn her to be careful what is said, and to be consistent
in an future response, and that whatever is said will likely appear
on some blog sites fairly quickly.

I was on the boat trip last night to the dinner. David Warrilow
was behind me talking to a Pauline Midgeley (who is a Brit, but
she's in the TSU team in Bern). David mentioned the name David
Holland. It seems that they are beginning to take the issue
more seriously.

A request from Mr. Montford; not a surprise I would say. I am going to
treat this under FOIA as I believe that the essence of the request is a
request for a 'contract' and correspondence relating to the
transmission/transfer of information that just happens to be
environmental in nature. In the end, I'm not sure it makes that much
difference to the outcome.

Perhaps a matter to add to our meeting on Monday?

I will make the appropriate acknowledgement of the request. Due date is
13 August.

Cheers, Dave

Dear Sir or Madam,

I gather from Dr Phil Jones' correspondence with Douglas Keenan
restrictions have been placed on redistribution of climate data by
some of the countries that have supplied this data.

I would like to receive copies of all agreements or other
correspondence where such restrictions have been placed.

Yours faithfully,

Andrew Montford
