Jessica Trevitt,

I note that this request has been marked as having received a
partial response. While information has not been provided for
certains Parts of the request this is because it is not held.

The request is written on the assumption that EH did not meet
certain targets and so asked for information relating to this. As
EH met the targets in question no information in held in relation
how we will rectify not having do ne so. We believe that the
response that has been provided is complete.
