Response

From our initial assessment it is clear that we will not be able to answer your request without further clarification.
Under section 1(3) of the Act, a public authority need not comply with a request unless any further information reasonably required to locate the information is supplied.

In order to progress your request we require clarification on the background to the information you are looking for.
Your request is for information about destroying all material relating to TSR-2; however, a search of our online catalogue Discovery indicates that The National Archives holds 326 files using the search term “TSR 2” (see link below).
This would suggest that, if this is the information you are looking for, it wasn’t all destroyed.

These records are open and available to the public; you do not need to submit an FOI request to view them.

I could not locate any closed records (which would require the submission of an FOI request) using the same search term.

There is more information on our website about searching for and viewing records:
