Reply:-

 

Part 1: No Information held.

 

Part 2: No Information held.

 

For parts 1 & 2 we hold no information due to the fact the fleet
information requested will now have been deleted from our system, and will
no longer be held in ‘hard copy’ due to the age of the vehicles. We are
only legally required to keep information for 7 years from point of
disposal.

 

Part 3: We believe it would have been 1989 -1990 that ARV’s were
introduced, however no information is held that confirms this
categorically.

 

Every effort has been made to ensure that the information provided is as
accurate as possible.

Your attention is drawn to the below which details your right of
complaint.

Should you have any further enquiries concerning this matter, please write
