c) If a request for documentation and/or its retention has been received from the Infected Blood Inquiry, please supply a copy of any such notices or requests.
Thank you for your freedom of information request received on 8 January
Your request will now be considered in accordance with the Freedom of
Information Act 2000. You will receive a response within the statutory
timescale of 20 working days after the date of receipt as defined by the
Act, subject to the information not being exempt or containing a reference
to a third party. In some circumstances we may be unable to achieve this
deadline. If this is likely you will be informed and given a revised
timescale at the earliest opportunity.
In some cases there may be a fee payable for the retrieval, collation and
provision of the information you request. If this is the case you will be
informed and the 20 working day timescale will be suspended until we

another public authority in order to answer your query in the fullest
possible way. Again, you will be informed if this is the case.
