apparent) why exemption applies.

Section 12 (1) of the Freedom of the Freedom of Information Act states

information if the authority estimates that the cost of complying with the
request would exceed the appropriate time limit of 18 hours of an officers
time to manually review records, retrieve and collate the data which we

time limit.
