Dear Mr Alder,


I have noticed on the MCA website a list of 'Interested Organisations', ie organisations the Agency involves in consultations from time to time. Could you please let me know if there exists any document (or documents or parts thereof) to which I might have access under the Code, which defines what an 'interested organisation' is (and why Social Audit Ltd isn't)? Far be from me to suggest that Social Audit has much to offer to compare with bodies such as the Women into Public Life Campaign, but you never know.

While I'm writing, I'd also like to pass on our congratulations, in the light of Dr Jones' view, expressed in the recent MCA annual report, that "The Agency has had another busy and successful year during which almost all of its high level targets were achieved, and several exceeded". This is very encouraging; keep up the good work.

Many thanks for your attention.

Yours sincerely,
Charles Medawar
