What is Cornwall 2?

My quest for a clear description of the legal status of the Duchy of Cornwall and its relationship to the territory of Cornwall continues.

Thank you for your e-mail dated 16th September 2007 in which you requested an Internal Review of the department’s decision. The Department has now conducted a review of its decision and I would like to assure you that you have been supplied with all disclosable information that the Ministry of Justice held at the time, therefore there is no further information we have to provide to you.

The Freedom of Information Act provides a right to recorded information held but not to an opinion of what the Ministry believes the Duchy of Cornwall is or a clarification on a point of law. As such we have to inform you that the concerns that you raise on how the Duchy of Cornwall should be defined have to be dealt with outside the scope of FOI and can not be addressed in this review.

If you are unhappy with my findings you have the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a decision. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at the Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire. SK9 5AF.

Yours sincerely

Access Rights Unit

I'd love to have a look at the undisclosable information they hold, but anyway where does one go to get an honest answer in relation to a UK constitutional issue? Do we have to go to court to get the truth?

Two forum threads on this topic: 1)Cornwall 24 & 2)This is NOT England
