Your Freedom of Information Request (Ref: FOI-4073)

 

Dear Mr Davies

 

Thank you for your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. I am
unable to reply in full to your FOI request as I require clarification on
certain points, as detailed below:

 

·         Please can you clarify exactly what you mean by “joint venture”?
Are these different to shared services?

Please understand that clarification requests are necessary in order to
locate and provide you with the correct requested information. The 20 day
response period will be on hold until I receive this clarification.

Regards

Compliance Team
