Dear Dr Lander,

Thank you for your reply. I have left my telephone number with your colleague and I look forward to hearing from you when you are free.

As you appear to have now identified the information for your own purposes, it may be helpful if you provide me with a list, which I believe is a requirement in any event. I can then compare this with information already in my possession for I shall not need to see that same information again. I hope this may save you some time.

Yours sincerely,

Ian Salisbury

Dear Mr Salisbury

Many thanks for your time on the phone today, and for explaining a little more about the information you are seeking. I am sorry that we have not provided a response within the statutory deadline, and I am grateful for your patience and understanding in this matter.

As I mentioned, I will now seek to bring together the information you have asked for and provide a response to you. I will aim to achieve this within the next 10 working days if this is acceptable to you. If I am able to compile and complete a list of the relevant information prior to this time, I will of course be in touch sooner to discuss.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions regarding the above.

Yours sincerely

Dr Lou Lander

Dear Mr Salisbury,

I am writing further to my email of 18th May 2015 to apologise for the
delay in responding to you. 

This is a complex request where we have identified a significant amount of
information which does require review before we are able to provide a
response.  Please be assured that I am working to get your response back
to you as a priority and I will seek to get a response to you as early as
possible next week.

Thank you for your continuing patience.

Yours sincerely

Dear Catherine Leach,

Thank you for your email. I am content to wait until next week for the information but rather perturbed that it should be necessary to have it reviewed at this late stage before issue.

If any information is to be treated as exempted information, please nevertheless list the information and provide the reason for its exemption. (All the information should, in any case, be listed.)

Yours sincerely,

Ian Salisbury

Dear Mr Salisbury,

Thank you for your email.

Please find attached file 5 which I have compressed and re-sent to you. Apologies that this particular file failed to send on Friday, this could have been due to the large file size.

I hope this is helpful.

Dear Catherine Leach,

Thank you for sending the remaining file, which I have now received. On reviewing the information you have sent me it appears to be restricted to correspondence between your own employees at executive staff level and City Council employees at case officer level. What appears not to be present is any correspondence between more senior staff who may be expected to deal with policy issues. Given the evident involvement of these members of staff throughout the duration of the planning process, it is surprising that there is no related information.

I would be grateful if you would confirm under section 1(1) of the FOI Act that you have now provided me with all of the information requested.

Yours sincerely,

Ian Salisbury

FOI, Network Rail Limited

Dear Mr Salisbury,

Please be advised that we have made enquiries with our contacts in the business to check the information held for your request. We have asked them to come back to us by close of play today.

I will also come back to you with a further response before close of play today.
