Dear Mr Stern

 

The Regulations allow us 20 working days to respond to your request from

the 20 working day time limit for issuing a response. In this case,
because of the complexity/volume of the request, we are extending the time
limit for responding by 14 days to 9 October 2017.

 

Yours sincerely
