Dear Mr. Broadchest

as we are able; we believe that to provide any more would exceed the
appropriate limit as defined by the Freedom of Information and Data
Protection (Appropriate Limit) Regulations 2004. For your information this
is £450, calculated as the estimated cost of one person spending 18 hours
in determining whether the information is held, then locating, retrieving
and extracting the information. Section 12 of the Freedom of Information
Act 2000 therefore makes provision for public authorities to refuse such
1. Please see attached (due to numbers these will be sent in several
batches of zip files).

from each of these although not all hold information which is extractable

you have requested.
