Dear B Wray

 

I am writing for clarification with regards to your Freedom of Information
request on illegal hunting.

 

In your final question you ask ‘How many successful prosecutions have you
secured regarding the illegal killing of foxes/hares?’. Please could you
specify a time frame within which you require the information to be
searched for. For example, the last 5 full calendar years.

 

Kind regards.
