Dear Ms Vas,

Thank you for this response. Let me simplify my request that it might be expedited within the time limit:

Under the FOI act, please provide

1. The dates on which any permissions were granted to HS2 Ltd for attendances at Conservative/Labour/Liberal Democrat party conferences, 2016-2019.
2. If it is not too burdensome in terms of time, please provide copies of said permissions.
3. It would be helpful if you could also provide any basic information you have on the permissions process for lobbying/PR activities/party conference attendances, as required per the guidance in the 'Cabinet Office Rules on Lobbying by Non-Departmental Public Bodies' (https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk...)
4. Please include as a minimum how these permissions are named or classified, and the job titles of all staff members who are authorised to grant said permissions.
