reference to questions 3 and 4, the response is 'not applicable'. As
requested, I have also attached this reply as a PDF.

 

I hope that this is the information that you require. If you are
dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the right to ask
for an internal review. Internal review requests should be submitted
within two months of the date of receipt of this response and should be

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
