Dear Metropolitan Police Service (MPS),

Thank you for your reply. I was wondering if it might be possible to narrow the request to bring it within the cost threshold? For example, if I were to simply ask for the number of vehicles seized in 2019 and 2020, without requiring the breakdown by category?

Thanks,
Jamie
