Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

How many FOI requests have been received by the BBC on a year by year basis for the past 3 years? (Until the end of 2019)

Please can you advise on how many FOIs are rejected as the information is held for "journalism, art or literature" purposes - for past 3 years, on a year by year basis?

Please can you advise on how many FOIs are rejected for other reasons - for past 3 years, on a year by year basis?

How many times were you were reported to the ICO because of breaches and if they issued fines and how much - for past 3 years, on a year by year basis?

Please can you able to advise how long the minimum, average, and maximum number of days a FOI request takes to complete - for past 3 years, on a year by year basis?

Please can you advise the minimum, average, and maximum cost to process an FOI request - for past 3 years, on a year by year basis?

Please can you advise how many staff you have in your department working on FOI requests - for past 3 years, on a year by year basis?

If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits identified in Section 12, please provide advice and assistance, under your Section 16 obligations, as to how I can refine my request to be included in the scope of the Act.

In any case, if you can identify ways that my request could be refined please provide further advice and assistance to indicate this.
