Dear Mr Jefferson,

Thank you for your email below, unfortunately I believe this has been acknowledged to you as a new request. This is incorrect and we are dealing with this as a follow up to your previous request.

Unfortunately there was also an error with your email dated 14/05/2018 in which you originally queried the information provided for the year 2002. We have had some temporary members of staff in our business support role whom had logged the email as a thank you for the information and omitted to pass on your query to myself who had been dealing with your request.

Please accept our sincere apologies for the mix up, I have sent your query to our Risk & Insurance department to clarify the information provided and will get back to you with a response as soon as possible.

Once again apologies for the confusion caused.
If you have any further queries please address your email to myself directly.

Kind Regards
