Dear Department for Education,

I have not yet received a reply to my Freedom of Information request which asked for details about academy trusts receiving advances to achieve financial stability in financial years 2016/17 and 2017/18. I also requested the total amount of advances awarded in financial year ending 31 March 2018 and the names of academy trusts receiving loans under CIF and the amount each one received.

By law, I should have received a reply within 20 working days. I should be grateful if you could send me a reply before 6 July 2018 to avoid a request for an Internal Review.

Yours faithfully,

J Downs
