Information requested

This is a follow up request to a previous FOI response. Your ref: 202200332826

The response to the above referenced request includes an email chain discussing a paper on the in/for spending distinction in GERS, and the decision not to publish that paper alongside the GERS report. Please provide that paper, in its most up to date draft.


I enclose a copy of the information you requested. Please note that this is the most up to date draft, as requested.
