Dear Mr Smith,

Thank you for your email to The Institute of Cancer Research, London, requesting information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. Please find our response below:

In response to your first 2 questions:

1. How many years have body's such as yourselves been researching cancer?
The Institute if Cancer Research (ICR) has been carrying out research into cancer since it first opened in 1909. For a wider history of cancer research we refer you to the Cancer Research UK website http://www.cancerresearchuk.org/our-rese....

2. How much (In total) have cancer research taken in donations from people since its beginning?
The ICR does not hold records of donation to other institutions, and we do not hold donation records that go back as far as our opening. However we can state that the ICR has been given donations, including legacies, amounting to £79.9m in the last 10 completed financial years (to 31st July 2015).

For the remaining questions we estimate the cost of compliance would exceed the statutory cost limit, hence your request is declined in this regard under section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act (2000).

You may be interested to look at our public website to view the research carried out at this institution, and this may help you to clarify any further questions you may have:
http://www.icr.ac.uk/our-research

If we do not receive a response within 20 working days we will consider the matter closed.

I trust this satisfies your request.

Yours sincerely,

The ICR Freedom of Information Office.

Dear foi,

Thanks for answering my first few questions.

Could you please explain why/how It would cost you money by answering these questions, as I Assume/Presume you mean money when you say "Cost".

These are the questions I'm referring to that you declined to answer.

4. Do cancer cells cells feed on sugar?

5. What else do cancer cells feed on?

6. In 1970, 1 In 100 people where expected to catch cancer, that Is now 1 In every two people dying or catching cancer to date, why are things getting worse with all this "Research" and money being given to look for cures, Instead of better?

Dear Mr Smith

Thank you for your email to The Institute of Cancer Research, London, requesting information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. Please find our response below:

The information requested does not appear to relate specifically to the ICR – the questions are somewhat broad and open-ended, and (in a general sense) the information will already be in the public domain. Location of ICR-specific text relating to these issues would involve extensive research across a number of areas, to identify all relevant documents. As such, the ICR has estimated that the cost of compliance (including staff time, data location, searches, retrieval and extraction) would exceed the statutory cost limit, as outlined under section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act.

We previously sent you the link to our research pages, which may be of assistance, along with general internet searches, eg. the patient centred pages on the Cancer Research UK website:

http://www.cancerresearchuk.org/about-ca...

If you are able to narrow down your queries to focus on specific recorded information or statistics held by the ICR, we would be happy to review your request accordingly.

If you are dissatisfied with this response, you may ask The Institute to conduct a review of this decision. To do this, please contact The Institute in writing, describe the original request, explain your grounds for dissatisfaction, and include an address for correspondence. You have 40 working days from receipt of this letter to submit a review request. When the review process has been completed, if you are still dissatisfied, you may ask the Information Commissioner to intervene.

I trust this satisfies your request.
