Dear Colin Dunn,

I am writing in response to your request for information, received 30th
May.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
I refer to your re.

To limit costs it will satisfy my request if you can supply information as of the present time,and in the case of statistics limited to the current financial year,or the minimum period to show meaningful information, that an average person would be able to evaluation.

I trust this will not be used as a delay in answering my initial request,as the points clarified could have be answered much sooner.
To save cost electronic copies are acceptable,as I am led to believe they may be available.

Yours faithfully,

Colin Dunn
