In response to an FOI request for a copy of the letter sent by Sir Ian Blair, Metropolitan Police Commissioner to Sir John Gieve, Permanent Secretary at the Home Office, following the shooting of Mr Jean Charles de Menezes on 22 July.
The request outlined above resulted in the release of the information requested. For the sake of completeness, we are also publishing today, Sir John Gieve’s reply of 22 July to Sir Ian Blair’s letter and a letter of 22 July from Len Duvall, Chair of the Metropolitan Police Authority to Sir John Gieve.
NB: Sir Ian’s letter was incorrectly dated 21 July but was in fact sent on 22 July.
