Dear Mr Mason

We are contacting you in respect of the request for information relating
to internal transport provision made by yourself under the Freedom of
Information Act on 25^th November 2009, due for a response by 22^nd
December.

I would like to confirm that the PCT holds information relating to your
request and has been working on the response. However, due to an
unavoidable and unfortunate combination of work volumes and staff
absences, we still have outstanding tasks in order to complete responses
for part of the request.

Consequently, under the terms of the Act, we are requesting that you grant
an extension of the time period of a further 7 working days to be applied
to the request in order for the PCT to provide its response and I would be
grateful if you could confirm, by email, whether this is acceptable to
you.

If you have any queries about this proposal, please do not hesitate to
contact me.

Yours sincerely

Mark Clutton
