Thank you for your email. This is an automated response to let you know

(FOI) team and will now receive our attention. No further acknowledgement
will be sent. If your request does not constitute a request under FOI we
will be in touch to advise you of an alternative course of action or
redirect your message elsewhere and let you know. Valid FOI requests will
receive a response as soon as possible and we will endeavour to respond
within the statutory timescale of 20 working days. This is calculated as
follows: • 20 working days, counted from the next working day following
receipt of your request. • Public holidays and similarly recognised
non-working days including Saturdays and Sundays are not accounted for
within the 20 working days. • Standard office hours are considered to be
Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm. Requests received after 5pm will be deemed to

calculating the 'due date' for your request. Our reply to you will confirm
whether we hold the information you have requested and will either provide
you with the information you have requested or explain why it has not been
provided quoting an Exemption under the FOI Act. We will contact you for
clarification should we fail to understand any part of your FOI request.
