As explained in our acknowledgement message, the University's working
arrangements are affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, I am
currently unable to tell you exactly when you will receive a response to
your request. However, I can confirm that it is actively being progressed
and that we are making all efforts to respond to your request promptly.
The [1]Scottish Information Commissioner's Office has issued a statement

If you are unhappy with the way the University has handled your request,
you do have the right to ask the University to conduct an internal review
of the reasons for the delay. The [2]Scottish Information Commissioner's
guidance about this during the Covid-19 pandemic is available on their
website. If you wish to submit a review request you should write to the
Records Management Section (using this email address), describing the
original request, explaining your grounds for dissatisfaction, and
including an address for correspondence. When the review process is
complete, if you are still dissatisfied, you may use the Scottish
Information Commissioner's guidance on making an appeal to make an appeal
to the Commissioner.
