Good Morning,

Upon reviewing your request I have noted that you have stated ' By law, I should like to receive this request on or before 2nd June 2022.' Your request was sent to us at 21:42 on the 5th of May 2022, which means it was 'received' by us the next working day of the 6th of May 2022. We have 20 working days to respond to you, which means that the deadline is the 7th of June 2022 (taking into account the bank holidays) and not the 2nd of June 2022.

Please note: we make every effort to get FOI requests back in a timely manner, and often well before the 20 working day deadline, but that the deadline is the 7th of June.

Kind Regards,
Victoria Higham
