Dear Madam or Sir,

On 23 July 2008, I sent you a Freedom of Information request, asking:

'Would you please provide any correspondence between your Agency and the following correspondents regarding any consideration of Ulster-Scots becoming one of the official language of the European Union?

1 Her Britannic Majesty's Government

2 the Government of Ireland (the republic)

3 the Institutions and Agencies of the European Union'

However, 20 working days later, now I still have not received the information I requested.

Section 10(1) of Freedom of Information Act 2000 (c. 36) provides that "Subject to subsections (2) and (3), a public authority must comply with section 1(1) promptly and in any event not later than the twentieth working day following the date of receipt." Therefore, I am entitled to your response immediately, and now expect it by the end of today, Friday 22 August 2008.

Sincerely,

Dr Kaihsu Tai

Dear Madam or Sir,
