    Question pass (on) the information

    Is there any actual difference between the two following sentences:
    1. "I will pass on this information to John."
    2. "I will pass this information to John."?

    In fact, should (1) it be:
    3. "I will pass this information on to John."?

    Thanks,
    Nyggus

    All three are equally correct.

    Cool Re: pass (on) the information

    One thing worth remembering - if a pronoun used (e.g. it), put it after the verb, and before the particle:
    I will pass it (= this information) on to John.

    Incidentally, it's worth being aware of the other meanings of 'pass on' - http://www.usingenglish.com/referenc...s/pass+on.html
