Good Afternoon,

 

I write to you with regards to your Freedom of Information request which
we received today reference 488/19.

 

Upon reading your request are you please able to clarify what you mean by
‘firearms department’ and ‘firearms registry department’ as this could be
considered as the same department. In Q1 are you referring to the Armed
Response Unit and in Q2 the Firearms Licencing Department?

 

The ‘clock’ counting down the 20 working day protocol for disclosure will
be stopped until clarification has been received from yourself. I.e.
clarification has been sought on the 1st day, therefore when clarification
has been received we shall still have 19 working days to deal with your
request.

 

Please note that if we do not receive any clarification from you be
advised that your request will be closed with no further action after 20
working days.

 

If there is anything further you would like to discuss, please do not
hesitate to contact me via the below telephone number.

 

Kind Regards,

 

Olivia
