FOI Requests, Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

Dear Ms Hayhurst

Thank you for your email of 9 April regarding your request FOI2019/04679.
Your request is being considered under the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (‘the EIRs’) on the basis that the information you have asked for falls within the definition of ‘environmental information’ in the EIRs. Under the EIRs, we are required to respond to requests as soon as possible, and in any case no later than 20 working days after receiving a request. However, by regulation 7 the period of 20 working days may be extended up to a total of 40 working days if we reasonably believe that the complexity and volume of the information requested means that it is impractical to comply with a request within the earlier period or to make a decision to refuse to do so.

In respect of your request, we believe that regulation 7 applies. Therefore, although we are not able to respond fully to your request within the 20 working day period, we shall do so as soon as possible within the extended period. We hope to provide you with a response by 9 May or sooner if possible.

Kind regards
