Dephormation - Interesting (partial) disclosure by government on PHORM legal case

Dephormation - Home Office FoI Documentation and Correspondence: "They don't account for the missing items of correspondence, such as the 7 December 2007 email referenced in the first correspondence file  and the additional information in the second disclosure concerning contact with 121Media in 2006 and early 2007, all of which was excluded without explanation at the time of the response to the FoI. One surprising comment, I'm told in the document that disclosing information would mean a disclosure to a 'genuinely interested and concerned applicant automatically opens it up for disclosure to anyone, including those who might represent a threat to the UK'. Bearing in mind Phorm is supposedly an advertising system, its hard to see how disclosing information about the relationship between the Home Office and Phorm might pose a threat to the UK."
