to spend (Section 12 of the FOIA) on a request please prioritise the last
year.

 

Response; Unfortunately the data is not held in a reportable format within

requiring permission.  Similarly, information supplied can also be re-used
for the purposes of news reporting.  An exception to this is photographs.

 

For other forms of re-use, for example publishing the information, you
would need the permissions of the organisation or the person who owns the
