To ask Her Majesty's Government further to the Written Answer by Baroness Crawley on 5 October (WA 484), whether the Cabinet Office's Propriety and Ethics Team has issued internal advice or guidance stating that there should be a presumption against disclosure in relation to (a) specific Freedom of Information Act requests, or (b) Freedom of Information Act requests as a whole. [HL240]

The presumptions to be applied for and against disclosure which form the basis of advice and guidance in relation to freedom of information requests are as detailed in my answer of 5 October (WA 484).
