Dear Ms Hayhurst,
 
Further to our last communication of 26 February 2020, I am writing to
you to inform you that it has again become necessary to extend the time
limit to respond.
 
The various considerations of the public interest arguments to be used,
where some of the information may be exempt from disclosure, plus the
additional logistical burden of operating under the current Covid-19
circumstances, where everything is being done remotely, has unfortunately
made this necessary.
 
It is now anticipated that we will be in a position to respond by or
before 7 April 2020.
 
Yours sincerely,
 
FOI Officer
