11 Jan Home Office Response To FOI Request Concerning Cannabis In The Media

I submitted an FOI request to the Home Office as follows:

Please provide full details of any communication with the media, press or broadcast, including D notices, instructions, requests, advice, guidelines or other matters concerning the reporting or coverage of cannabis or cannabis related stories, news, opinion, science, research or any related matters.

This is the Home Office’s response:

We have carried out a thorough search and we have established that the Home Office does not hold the information which you have requested. As far as we are aware guidance has never been issued to the media concerning their reporting or coverage of cannabis or cannabis related stories.

Of course, some might believe that the Home Office wouldn’t answer the question truthfully anyway.

However, we now have this response on record.

You can track this FOI request and review all the correspondence here.
