I would like the information to be emailed to me in electronic form at the following email address: [email address]
If you cannot provide the complete responses to my requests within the scope mentioned below, please provide what available information you have and an explanation for why you cannot provide the data requested.
I ask that you justify all omissions by reference to specific exemptions of the act.
I reserve the right to appeal your decision to withhold any information or to charge excessive fees.
If there are any omissions under Section 21 of the act, I would politely request that the information is clearly signposted in the response to my request, in the interests of accessibility.
