Dear FOI (RRE) MPFT,

Thank you for providing this response.

I have a query. I requested that the data for 2018 and 2019 be broken down by month.

The data for 2018 and 2019 in the spreadsheet you returned is not broken down by month.

Please could you provide a version of this data broken down monthly? Please would it be possible to please do the same for the 2020, rather than the weekly breakdown you provided?

Yours sincerely,

Aaron Walawalkar
