Email from DfE 15/09/2011
15 September 2011
Eventually there is some response to the letter sent to the Prime Minister. It is a little worrying that it takes them so long to deal with their paperwork. It is also a little disturbing that the Prime Minister's office couldn't be bothered to reply but simply sent the letter to another department. Whether it was the Prime Minister's office that took so long to deal with the letter or the Department for Education is unknown but since the DfE responded to the letter forwarded from the Home Secretary back at the beginning of August the suspicion is that the PM's office has only just got round to forwarding the letter to the DfE.
All that aside they have nothing to say except that they have nothing to say really. They also included an attachment which was the previous email they had sent to Dave.
Subject: Case Reference 1234/1234567
Dear Ms Hook
Thank you for your letter of 21 July addressed to the Prime Minister. Your letter has been passed to this Department for reply as we have policy responsibility for the issues you raise.
You will already have received a reply sent on 4 August from Lynn Garland in our Public Communications Unit, to a similar letter you sent to the Home Secretary.
I am sorry but there is nothing further that we can add to the reply you have already received. I enclose a copy of that reply for your information.
Child Safeguarding Division
