I regret to inform you that Avon and Somerset Constabulary have not been
able to complete its response to your request by the date originally
stated. 

 

I now advise you that the amended date for a response is no later than

application of a qualified exemption, and as such will require further
consideration regarding the public interest test.  I can assure you that
every effort will be made to ensure an appropriate response will be made
within this new timescale.

 

May I apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your
request.

 

Yours sincerely

Dear Freedom of Information Requests,

By way of clarification, I am getting in touch to make it clear that the original request is for data disaggregated by opening code, rather than one single blanket figure. Please either treat this as a separate request, or bear this in mind as part of the internal review for the request made in the first instance. A case reference number has not been provided, but the full correspondence can be viewed here: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/r...

Yours sincerely,
M Esslemont
