Dear FOI BSO,

My unanswered information request refers.

Whilst appreciating pressures arising as a result of the Covid 19 pandemic I would nonetheless question the need for delay, beyond the 20 working day limit set out by statute, particularly bearing in mind the specific time-limited scope of my request.

Whilst I await your responses I have taken the liberty of seeking similar information from the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).

Yours sincerely,

Ed Ward-Robb
