They are obliged under the Act to help you refine your query so it comes under the cost limit. You could remind them of that and ask how you might do that.

Also, this information will be stored in some database somewhere so they don't need to do the analysis - you can ask for data on all complaints, anonymised if necessary (they cannot use the cost of redaction in a refusal). This should be straightforward and not exceed the hours limit. You can then do the analysis on serious etc yourself.

If they get fussy about that, ask for the data dictionary so you can be specific about what fields you wish (e.g. time recorded, description, etc)
