Hi Naiomi,

Unfortunately this request doesn’t fall to our department and I am currently in the process of trying to find out which department it would best sit with.

We're not allowed to send FOI requests between departments so once I have found out who this should sit with, you will need to forward your request onto that department.

I will keep you updated when I know more.

Thanks,

Johnathan
