Dear Chris,

Thanks for your email which was forwarded to me by a Colleague. I have just returned from annual leave so apologies for the delay in my reply.

Our Director of Finance oversees all Freedom of Information Act requests and he will return from annual leave tomorrow so I will discuss gathering this information with him then.

In the meantime, I just wanted to ask if I can enquire what this information will be used for. Given the nature of the questions, I am concerned that it may be used for sales and marketing purposes.

Many thanks,
Theresa
