Dear Mr U Khanna
I write in response to your Freedom of Information request dated 21 March. We are able to respond to part of your request today - see information below. We are unable to provide the rest of the information (responses to Questions 3 and 4) today but are working on this with a view to providing the information as soon as possible. The delay is due to the relatively small number of staff who work in this area, staff absence and University closure over the Easter period, and the workload of the staff concerned. We hope to be able to provide the rest of the information by the end of next week, and will update you on our progress should the situation change. We apologise for any inconvenience that this delay causes to you.

Yours sincerely
