We are currently focussing our efforts toward the protection and safeguarding of high risk groups, the public and our staff during the COVID-19 outbreak, and as such the business area may not be able to provide full information for the completion of the Freedom of the Information request.

I trust, during this difficult time, you will understand this position. If you are dissatisfied, we would advise you re submit your request in 3-6 months time, where we may be in a position to confirm our response or provide further information.
