Dear Janet,

Just contacting for an update on when you expect this information to be available.

I would very much appreciate if an indicative estimated timescale could be prepared and trust that this will not be much longer.

Dear Ms Tian

Thank you for your email. Due to there being personal information contained in the data you have requested the delay is because of the redaction of this information.

We wish to apologise again for the ongoing delay and can advise that we hope to have the information with you by the end of this week.

Kind Regards

Dear Team, Foi,

Thanks folks, much appreciated. As such adverts are pre-candidate selection I'm a bit suprised there were a lot of personal details but I guess I'll see what you mean soon enough.

Thanks for your help and keep up the good work!

Yours sincerely,

Ms Siliang Tian MSc BA LLB

Ms Siliang Tian MSc BA LLB

Dear Team, Foi,

Hope my request hasn't caused too much work for you folks.

Just to say I notice you didn't managed to get the data back to me last week as intended, but, from the sound of things I suspect that means a herculean effort is going on at your end. I am a bit surprised there is such a significant volume of information, assuming you're redacting reporting information or something?

Anyway I would ask that only that identifiable personal information which is exempt from disclosure under GDPR is redacted and all other details left. :-)

Thanks again for your help. I hope to receive the data soon.

Apologies once again for the degree of work this request appears to have created for you - it is appreciated!

Yours sincerely,

Ms Siliang Tian MSc BA LLB
