Please can you confirm that you have received this query and that you are the appropriate person to contact with these information requests, and if this request is best directed to another person or organisation you have my permission to transfer the request to them.

I would be grateful if you could contact me in the event that you judge this query to overrun on cost. In such an event could you provide me with ways and means by which I can amend this query so that its manageable within your own cost guidelines.- Further to Section 16 of the Act (duty to provide advice and assistance), Should you require any further information, such as a phone number please let me know.
My own suggestion would be to provide the answers for question 1-5 starting with the most recent year (2011) and go back in time as far as cost permits.
Further to my email yesterday, please find attached the complete information you requested in your Freedom of Information request dated 11.1.12.
