Dear Mr Evans

I did not receive your clarification as to which Infected Blood Enquiry you were referring to by 14 January as requested.

I have therefore closed this request and no further action will be taken. Should you wish to make this request again, we shall require clarification of the enquiry to which you are referring and then will process the request within 20 working days of its receipt.

Thank you.

Best wishes
