Dear Dr Hansford,

Thank you for your email. I have tried to open the link but, unfortunately, our system will not allow it. If you could send me the questions pasted into an email or Word document we will be able to respond to you.

We will also need to send you our response as a letter which is approved and signed by our Chief Executive and not via Survey Monkey as we are required to publish all Freedom of Information responses on our Disclosure Log.

Yours sincerely,

Rona Button
