Dear Andrew Taylor

Freedom of Information Act 2000 – Information Request

Edge Hill University has recently completed and internal review relating to information requests received under the Freedom of Information Act, 2000. After considering the policy and procedures for handling requests for information the conclusion was that whilst the majority of requests were handled efficiently a number of requests made through the website “whatdotheyknow.com” had not been responded to.

Before continuing, I would like to apologise for the delay in the handling of your request. As a response to your request is considerably overdue I am unsure as to whether or not you still require the information. If you still require response documentation please let me know and be assured it will be given processing priority.

Kindest Regards

Lisa Cobain
Policy Officer
