Dear [email address] on behalf of FOI Team,
As agreed, please search for incidents reported.
Dear S Rhosier
Thanks for your reply I will commence search with our performance team for
'fox hunting' incidents, they may be able to search using a 'free text'
search of incidents but this may generate hundreds possibly thousands of
incidents with the words 'fox & hunting' within the content.
Can you also confirm what the initials APHA refer to as my initial
clarification below - does it relate to Animal & Plant Health Agency ?
I am not being difficult but do not like to assume.
BCH Information Management Department

APHA stands for Animal and Plant Health Agency
