Dear FOI Requests,
Hello this document you linked too did not provide the information i asked for in my FOI request. it just says adviser, assistant adviser etc. I requested for "specific titles and roles" e.g adviser for foreign policy, adviser for trade, head of programmes, private secretary, receptionist etc.

So can my request be considered with this clarification of the information i actually asked for

Yours sincerely,

alan cole
