From: Shawn Musgrave

To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

All records on, about, mentioning, or concerning Margaret Hilda Thatcher, Baroness Thatcher, née Roberts (13 October 1925 – 8 April 2013). Proof of death is not required because her 2013 death from a stroke has been widely reported.

Please limit this search to documents created from January 1, 2001 to the day this request is processed.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Shawn Musgrave

From: FOIA Request

Your query has been forwarded to the FOIA Requester Status mailbox for reply.

From: FOIA Status

Mr. Musgrave,

In the future you will get a quicker response if you send ALL status inquiries to foiastatus@state.gov<mailto:foiastatus@state.gov> . It appears MuckRock is sending status requests to foiarequests@state.gov<mailto:foiarequests@state.gov> . That is the wrong website to contact regarding status inquiries. In case you don't know, there are two separate offices and each performs separate function in the FOIA process.

I have contacted the Case Analyst and requested an estimated completion date for your case. The Analyst will contact the bureaus doing the searches and the individuals reviewing the material. This will take some time because each case is different. The search and review time varies. The time depends on the complexity of information requested and the time it takes to review the material.

I hope this information is helpful. If you have further concerns or any questions regarding any FOIA-related matter, please contact the FOIA Requester Service Center (FRSC) at (202) 261-8484, or fax us at (202) 261-8582 or send an e-mail to foiastatus@state.gov
