This request is marked as successful, however there has not actually been a response recorded.

If it was really answered, perhaps Mr Thurlow would add the response so we can all see it.

If not, perhaps he could update the status with the true situation.

P.S. According to the event log it was 26 working days between this question being posted and the status set yp "answered".

I would also be interested in understanding whether the response was received within the statutory deadline of 20-working days or whether EDDC broke the law again by failing to meet the deadline.
