Dear Department for Communities (Northern Ireland),

I am writing to you to request information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. In order to assist you with this request, I am outlining my request as specifically as possible.

Please provide details of benefit fraud reports and investigations in Co Derry in each of the past three years.

Please indicate:
- the number of reports of benefit fraud received in each year
- the number of investigations launched
- numbers relating to action taken following an investigation into benefit fraud (convictions, fines etc)

If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits identified in Section 12, please provide advice and assistance, under your Section 16 obligations, as to how I can refine my request to be included in the scope of the Act.

In any case, if you can identify ways that my request could be refined please provide further advice and assistance to indicate this.

I would be grateful if you could confirm in writing that you have received this request. I look forward to your response within 20 working days, as stipulated by the Act.

Yours faithfully,
Mr McGuigan
