Irish reunification correspondence: FOI release
FOI reference: FOI/202000069569
Date received: 31 Jul 2020
Date responded: 28 Aug 2020
Information requested

Any documentation (including correspondence) you hold relating to a potential future referendum In Northern Ireland.
I am particularly interested in lines to take, perceived risks, impacts, draft responses and contingencies in the event of a vote in favour of reunification.

Response

The information you have requested is enclosed in Annex A of this letter. You will note that the information is taken from general briefings for Ministers for meetings and events unrelated to the subject of your request and is mostly drawn from press reports or other information already in the public domain.
The remainder of these briefings are therefore outwith the scope of your request.
