Response:

Thank you for your enquiry of 6 August 2015, which has been handled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA).

In your request, you asked for information about the amount paid to the Confederation of British Industry and its subsidiaries by The National Archives, the Advisory Panel on Public Sector Information [APPSI] and the Advisory Council on National Records and Archives [ACNRA]

We explained that we have already published this information for the period  2009 – 2014 and would focus your request on whether any contributions have be made since the previous request – 6 September 2014 – 6 August 2015.

I can now confirm, in addition, that no payments have been made, and therefore no information is held, for payments by The National Archives, APPSI, or ACNRA, during this period.
