Dear Dr Jones,                             [See previous correspondence]

I would appreciate if the minutes of any meeting held during the course of the last year by the CSM or the MCA on the question of any conceivable association between antidepressants and suicide could be forwarded to me along with any paper that has been prepared for either committee related to this issue and in particular any assessment that has been undertaken of either the Healthy Volunteer Study that I submitted to you or the Hindmarch Study.

Please treat this as a formal request for information under the code of practice on access to Government information.

Yours sincerely,

David Healy MD FRCPsych
