Dear Enquiries,

I wish to submit an Internal Review please. I do not believe that S41(1) (Information Provided In Confidence) applies here or is a valid section to use to refuse my request. The information i have requested is 100% anonymous. I am solely asking what is the largest amount of money that someone has exchanged from paper to polymer at your office in London so far. So all i am asking for is one statistic. I am not asking for any personal details of who that person is or why they exchanged it or what their personal details are. Nothing that i am asking for could identify that person. What i am asking for is a statistic but the person remains 100% anonymous. Therefore there is no possible way that releasing this information could constitute a breach of confidence. A breach of confidence can not occur when a 100% anonymous statistic is released where there is no way of identifying the person. So your usage of the S41(1) (Information Provided In Confidence) exemption makes no sense and i do not believe that this is a valid exemption to refuse my request. Please kindly carry out an Internal Review in to your response. Thank you for your help and i look forward to hearing back within twenty working days.

Yours sincerely,

John Taylor
