There's no difficulty with using the figures, and no permission
is necessary, as they're already in the public domain. I have
figures from 1959 to 2000, inclusive, if you or other List
members are interested. Some had been in the public domain for
many years, I collated and released others during my tour of
duty on the Ministry of Defence's 'UFO Desk', and figures from
1995 onwards have emerged as a result of questions asked in
Parliament, or posed by journalists and ufologists. But all
figures are the official MOD ones, and can be referenced as

I'll email you my mailing address off-List, and look forward to
receiving a review copy of your report.

Best wishes,
