Dear S Elibank

Request for Information
 
Thank you for your correspondence which we received on 31 January, in
which you have made a request for information held by the Information
Commissioner's Office (ICO). 
 
Your request has been passed to the ICO’s Information Access Team, and is
being dealt with in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000
(FOIA) under the reference number shown above. 
 
As you are probably aware the FOIA provides individuals with the right of
access to recorded information held by public authorities. It is important
to note that a release under FOIA is applicant blind and therefore
effectively a release to the wider world.
 
We will respond to your FOIA request promptly, and no later than 28
February which is 20 working days from the day after we received your
request.
 
Should you wish to reply to this email please be careful not to amend the

Yours sincerely
