Dear Shepway District Council,
For the avoidance of doubt arising from the correspondence relating to the delivery error, please clarify that my original request for information has not been deleted from your system and remains valid.

Dear Dr Burrell,

I write to confirm that whilst I requested a recall of the erroneous message, your request regarding Japanese Knotweed is currently being registered and processed as required. At present, we are currently receiving significant FOI/EIR requests and this is why it wasn't acknowledged when received on Friday. A formal acknowledgment will follow.
