Dear Mrs Ferrie,

 

Thank you for your request for information, received by Aberystwyth
University on 4^th November.  You have asked for “all documents and
communications regarding health and safety preparations, including the
creation/revision of risk-assessments, regarding the joint
UCU/UNISON/UNITE industrial action”.  Given the scope of your request,
particularly with regard to ‘communications’, we estimate that the cost of
complying would exceed the appropriate limit of £450.  

 

In order for us to comply with your request, can I ask you to narrow its
scope to communications between specific departments or services and/or
between specific members of staff?

 

The deadline date for responding to this request for information is 2^nd
December 2013.  However, the ‘clock’ will stop until we receive the above
clarification.  You will then receive a response as soon as possible, and
in any event not later than 20 working days.

 

Yours sincerely,              

 

Julie Archer
