Dear Mr Knox

 

I am writing to acknowledge your request for information of 31 December

accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998, the Freedom of Information

other relevant legislation.

 

I shall write to you again once I am in a position to provide a
substantive response, though I may write to you before that should I

Please note that we have a policy of publishing in a disclosure log on our

the identity or other personal information of requesters. We will,
however, disclose the identity of requesters if this is in the public
