Dear Karm,

In reply to your request for information, received on 5th July 2010,
Distance Lab Ltd has produced the above summary, which provides details
on travel costs and payments associated with 'hospitality'.

We can confirm that all travel bookings were 'economy class' and, from
early 2008, travel arrangements were booked directly with the supplier
airline/hotel. Prior to this, Macraes Travel were used.

I trust the summary answers your questions, but should you wish to
request any further information please do not hesitate to contact me.

Under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA), you have
the right to request a review of the decision or any aspect of the

that right, you will need to contact us within 40 working days of
receipt of this email. If you remain dissatisfied on completion of the
review, you have the right to appeal to the Office of the Scottish
Information Commissioner.

Dear Paula Nichols,

thank you for your message. Unfortunately, I could not see any "summary above". Neither on this, nor the other your response.

Could you kindly check whether maybe this has gone lost during the submission procedure?

Many thanks for your cooperation.

Yours sincerely,

Karm Holmes
