Your request will now be considered and you will receive a response within
the statutory timescale of 20 working days as defined by the Act, subject
to the information not being exempt or containing a reference to a third

this deadline. If this is likely you will be informed and given a revised
time-scale at the earliest opportunity.

In the event that your requirements change or you no longer wish to

advise me of this as soon as possible.

There may be a fee payable for the retrieval, collation and provision of
