Dear Ms Park    

Further to your email below, the University intends to use the extension
available under section 10(3) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. 
This gives public bodies the right to extend the deadline for response to
FOI requests by up to 20 working days in order to consider the
applicability of the Public Interest Test.  We need to do this because we
believe that it may take longer than the appropriate time limit set out in
section 12(1) of the Freedom of Information Act to locate and present the
information for this response, and we therefore require additional time to
consider the balance of the public interest.  We will respond as soon as
possible within this extended timeframe.

Kind regards.

Yours sincerely,

Alice Mineyko
