Re: Enquiry Ref: NIC-27490-F39M6

Dear Emily,

Re: Information Request – Freedom of Information Act 2000

I am writing to acknowledge that your request for information was received
by The Information Centre on 24th June 2009.

Your request is currently being considered. If The Information Centre is
able to provide you with the information you have requested, then under
the Freedom of Information Act you are entitled to receive it within 20
working days. We may need to contact you to clarify your request.

May I take this opportunity to explain the Freedom of Information Act in
more detail. The Act defines a number of exemptions which may prevent the
release of some or all of the information you have requested. The
Information Centre will assess your information request in light of the
exemptions. If exemptions do apply, then The Information Centre may
decide not to release all, or part, of the information you have
requested. I shall inform you if this is the case, and advise you of your
rights of appeal.

If the information you request contains reference to a third party then
they may be consulted prior to a decision being taken by The Information
Centre as to whether to release the information to you. You will be kept
informed if this is the case.

The response to your request will be sent to you by email, however if you
require your response in any other format, please contact me to discuss a
suitable format.

The Information Centre will not normally charge a fee to provide you with
the information you have requested, unless the cost of dealing with your
request is more than £450. If it appears likely that your request will
cost more, I will write to you again asking if you are willing to pay the
fees incurred, clearly setting out what those fees will be (in accordance
with the Freedom of Information Act).

If you have any queries or should you wish to make a complaint about the
manner in which your request is being processed then please do not
hesitate to contact me at the above address in the first instance. Any
complaints will be investigated in accordance with the Information
Centre’s complaints procedure.

Further information about your rights under the Freedom of Information
Act, is available from the Information Commissioner’s Office, Wilmslow,
Cheshire and on the Information Centre’s website.

I will be in contact with you shortly.

Yours sincerely,
