I am dealing with your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
 
I would like to offer my apologies for the delay in responding. The
Department takes very seriously its obligations under the Act, including
the requirement to respond within the statutory deadline of 20 working
days. I am afraid that we have not been able to maintain this standard in
this instance, and while there may be considered to be mitigating
circumstances, this delay is not acceptable. I am very sorry for any
inconvenience it may have caused you.
 
Your request is currently being dealt with and you will receive a response
shortly.
 
If you have any queries about this letter, please contact us. Please
remember to quote the reference number above in any future
communications. 
 
Yours
