Dear Ms Appleton

Thank you for your enquiry of 23 March. This falls to be dealt with
under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

I am currently unclear about the exact information you require. Section
1(3) of the Freedom of Information Act provides that a public authority
need not comply with a request for information unless any further
information reasonably required to identify and locate the information
is supplied.

You have requested information on the number of "monitoring emails"
received from Tier 4 sponsors between 1 September 2010 and 28 February
2011. Please see the attached UK Border Agency website link below for
more information on migrant reporting.

inbox?

When you provide this information we will aim to send you a full
response to your request within twenty working days of its receipt. I
look forward to hearing from you shortly. However, please note that if I
do not receive appropriate clarification of your request within three
