2016 to Dec 31st 2016 (or your equivalent business/financial year), and;

The Freedom of Information Act requires us to provide this information to

However, if the information you request is subject to an exemption which

There are circumstances where a fee may be payable by you to cover
administration costs (e.g. printing, copying, postage and packaging). If
this applies to your request we will issue you with a ‘Fees Notice’
requesting payment. The fee must be paid before the information requested
is processed and released. The 20 working day time limit for responding
