Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
I have recently written letters, with requests for answers, to DWP Ministers Iain Duncan Smith and Chris Grayling, concerning the practices of Atos Healthcare. In response I received generic letters from 'The Correspondence Team' claiming Ministers are unable to respond due to the 'large volume' of mail they receive.
Could you please release to me the statistics on the amount of mail, both written and electronic, that the DWP have received that are connected with Atos Healthcare, ESA or the WCA?
This is an automated confirmation that your request for information has
been received at the DWP Central FoI Team.
We will forward your request to the relevant information owner within the
Department who will respond to you direct.
Should you also have any further queries in connection with this request
do please contact us.

Dear Ms Thorburn
Please see attached response to your FoI request.
