That volume is wrong, obviously. The clerk made a mistake. If you didnīt give them the correct reference that is one of the reasons.

As usual my dear boy, you appear, in your charming way, to have misunderstood, well....everything.

There is no "clerk" involved here.

I haven't given anyone an incorrect reference. I have asked the Metropolitan Police Service if I can consult a volume which a previous researcher not only said he had examined but which was also referred to as an existing record in a Decision of the Information Commissioner and which was supposed to have been deposited in the National Archives some years ago. The Metropolitan Police Service say they have no record of ever being in possession of that volume. It has not been deposited in the National Archives.

So now "The Metropolitan Police Service" speaks. Great.

I thought you had spoken to a person there.

My dear boy, I have spoken to more than one person at the Metropolitan Police Service during the protracted correspondence I have had with them. But the most recent response I received, on Friday, was from the Information Law Advisor of that organisation who was writing to me not in a personal capacity but on behalf of the MPS.
