Mr Akdeniz.

By this time you should have heard the result of your open govt. appeal through the Parliamentary ombudsman. My understanding of his judgement is that we are entitled to withhold those parts of section 10 of the publication which we had previously declined to let you have. I also understand that Mr Omand, the permanent secretary at the Home Office, is writing to you apologising for us asking your reasons for seeking access to the documents, and for the delay in dealing with your appeal through the COG. I trust that your experiences in dealing with the Home Office, PRCU and the COG appeal has not put you off visiting the PRCU web site and using our publications services.
