Gov299 Correspondence and a meeting note between Welsh Government and Brecon Beacons National Park
24 April 2012
Request for Information – references ATI 5948 and ATI 5982
Thank you for your requests which I received on 27 March 2012 and 19 April 2012 respectively. You asked for:
• Copy of the detailed comments made by Brecon Beacons National Park Authority (BBNP) in response to G M Quarrell's letter to BBNP of 14/09/2006;
• Copy of the formal written response by Carwyn Jones to Roger Williams of the same date;
• Copies of details, emails and minutes in relation to a meeting held on 3rd June 2008 between Chris Gledhill, Mary Taylor and Jane Davidson (then Minister). Also the briefing provided to the Minister relating to this meeting; and
• Notes taken during a meeting held prior to the meeting on 3rd June 2008 to discuss contingency plans for Welsh Government relating to finance attended by officials - Gerry Quarrell, Rosemary Thomas and Piers Bisson.
On the latter two bullet points (relating to ATI 5982) please let me know if I have not understood your request correctly.
I have failed to find the detailed comments made by the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority (BBNPA) to the letter issued by Mr Quarrell in September 2006. I suggest that BBNPA may have the relevant correspondence if indeed it was issued.
I have also failed to find the written response from Carwyn Jones to Roger Williams from September 2006.
I have found the note made of the meeting held on 3rd June 2008 between Jane Davidson, Chris Gledhill and Mary Taylor, which I have attached to this response. I have also attached the related Ministerial briefing.
Finally, I have not found a note of the pre-meeting between Gerry Quarrell, Rosemary Thomas and Piers Bisson.
Any information released under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 or Environmental Information Regulations 2004 will be listed in the Assembly Government’s Disclosure Log.
