Refused on DPA grounds!

399 orchestra members - perhaps less people - the data requested was :-

a) The number of people in each orchestra - not given (just the total number)
b) The number of people on 'Orchestra Pay grade'; again in each Orchestra
c) The most recent mean and median salary per Orchestra

Across nearly 400 people, there is nothing personally identifiable in this requested data! What a poor response, I hope the requester now seeks an internal review
