Correspondence between Treasury and the Public Record Office

FOI request reference: F0055999
Publication date: March 2019

Request

In 1993 the Lord Chancellor gave permission for Treasury to retain records for two or three years as they had a backlog.
I would like to see any correspondence between Treasury and the Public Record Office on the issue.

Outcome

Unsuccessful

Response

We can confirm that we do not hold information relevant to your request. In 1993, no Retention Instrument under PRA section 3(4) was signed by the Lord Chancellor,
and we do not hold correspondence between the Public Record Office and HM Treasury regarding an application to retain records in this year.
