received in that quarter will receive the same standardised reports as
answers. Kind regards Tom Swain| Governance and Data Protection Officer|

Dear Mr Phillips,

I had attached the file to my previous response but I see the 'what do they know portal' seems to have converted the file from a CSV to TXT.

Please find re-attached and also an XLSX version.

Kind regards
