Dear freedomofinformation,

Thanks for the reply.

To clarify: Question b) I am interested only in nationality, not residency. Question d) I am interested in residency (i.e if they are UK national, fostering for you, but live in the EU instead of the UK)

Hope this is sufficient for you to answer the request.

Yours sincerely,

Robert Cann
