Dear Mr Ince

As you can imagine, your request covers a large amount of information
and several different areas of the CAA. To help us to provide the
information that you are looking for, please could we ask you to clarify
whether there is any particular issue you are seeking information on,
for example:

The airspace closures that followed the volcano eruption
The agreement of a new airworthiness standard that allowed operations to
re-commence
Communications with any particular party or parties

This clarification would assist us in responding to you in a timely
manner.

Thank you
