Dear Department of Health and Social Care,

Thank you for your response, I would like to request an internal review with regard to q3. I believe it is in the public interest o know how much money is being spent on retaining information beyond their usual retention period due to poorly expressed instruction from inquiries

With regard to q2, please provide the figure regardless of inquiry a file has been retained for.

Yours faithfully,

Peter John
