Dear Ms Abderrahmane

Freedom of Information request - Brent LBOC bid

We believe that the information you have requested falls under the
exemption for Commercial Interests at section 43(2) of the Act, which is
subject to a public interest test. 

The Freedom of Information Act (ss.10(3) and 17(2)) allows public
authorities to extend the period for responding to requests under the Act
if the information requested is subject to exemptions and longer is needed
to consider the public interest. I am writing to inform you that it will
be necessary to extend the time limit to respond to your request beyond 20
working days in this case. We expect to have made a decision on this
matter by 8 October 2020, though if we are able to make a decision before
then, we will contact you sooner.

If you have any further questions relating to this matter, please contact
me, quoting the reference MGLA130820-0864.

Yours sincerely 

Information Governance Officer
