Dear Samantha Davey,

Thank you for your email received on 28 July.

Dear FOI,

I apologise for the inconvenience but would it be possible to organise this material a bit differently or put it in a word document? It's coming across jumbled at my end and it is unclear which figures correspond to which data.

Yours sincerely,
