Dear IC FOI,

Thank you for your response and apologies for not replying earlier, but I would still like to receive the information I requested about salary levels within the HR function. I appreciate your reasoning for not giving me the exact salary perhaps indicating which of the following salary bands the role falls within would suffice both our needs.
£45-50k
£50-55k
£55-60k
£60-65k
£55-70k
etc...
I shall be grateful if you would reconsider your decision in light of the above.

Yours sincerely,

Paul Smith

IC FOI, Inverness College
