Dear Helpline, Defra (MCU),

It is with disappointment that I am having to write to you with regards my FOI request "Reports and data regarding the prevalence of TB in cattle in and around the badger cull areas".

It as a legal requirement that you respond promptly to FOI requests, and I was expecting a response at the latest by 25th August.

Can you please let me know where you are in regards to responding to my request, and how long it will be until I get the information requested?

Below is a link to the FOI request, made by email via the 'whatdotheyknow' website.

Dear Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs's handling of my FOI request 'Reports and data regarding the prevalence of TB in cattle in and around the badger cull areas'.

It is now 46 days since my request, well beyond the 15 days and 20 days you suggest is reasonable to expect a reply. To date, I have not had any response from yourselves, other than the automated responses acknowledging receipt.

With the badger culls now underway (with no official announcements) it is even more imperative that this information is released promptly.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/r...

Yours faithfully,

Mr J Perrow

Dear Mr Perrow,

Please see below and attached the response to your request. Unfortunately we had technical issues with our correspondence handling system last month, which meant that some of the e-mails issued did not reach their intended destination. However, this issue has now been resolved. And as you can see from the e-mail below, our response was sent to you within the deadline of 28 August mentioned in our acknowledgement e-mail of 27 July.

Given this information, do you still want us to carry out an internal review?

Kind regards,

Mark Shotton
