Dear Mr Steel,

Thank you for your email.

The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) is not covered by the Freedom of Information Act (the FOIA), as it is not a designated authority, but has adopted its own voluntary Transparency Code that closely reflects the FOIA.

I am treating this as a request under our Transparency Code.

I will issue a response within 20 working days from the date of receipt of your request. Your request was received at the SRA on 03 July 2018 and I will therefore aim to issue my response by 31 July 2018.

More information on how we handle requests, as well as a copy of our Transparency Code, can be found on our website:

If you have any queries regarding this request, please contact me quoting Ref: TC/2018/116.

Kind regards

Dear SRA Information Compliance,

Thank you for your response.

I hate to be a pain, however this information is required for a Masters Dissertation which is due to be handed in very soon. Is there any way that you can supply the information I require sooner?

Thank you

Yours sincerely,

Gary Steel
