1. FOI Request

Dear Ministry of Defence,

In light of this story
http://m.surreycomet.co.uk/news/11621747.Former_Surrey_Comet_news_editor_gagged_over_reporting_of_alleged_paedophile_ring/ [2]

and this

http://www.theguardian.com/society/2014/nov/22/media-gagged-westminster-child-abuse-ring [3]

then people are increasingly sceptical of answers such as this

Please could you send me an index of the DA and D notices and
letters issued about them to entities- persons/corporations etc
issued since 1970, including the dates, person/organisation issued
to and what the notice and letter were about.

Under S 16 and a request if applicable, have any D/DA notices and
letters been confidential? and if so is it a practise for people
who know about them to deny knowledge of them when asked?
