Dear Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs,

I notice that Defra is collecting diffusion tube data at http://laqm.defra.gov.uk/diffusion-tubes... for local authorities in England.

Please provide me with information showing which local authorities used the diffusion entry system in 2012 and 2013 (until the present date of 20 October 2013). Where possible, I'd like access to information which shows what data was recorded - for which pollutents, frequency, number of samples, etc. If it is not possible to provide all of the information requested then please provide any part of the requested informaiton as required under the Environmental Information Regulations.

Yours faithfully,

Andrew Wood
