Dear John


Thank you for your request. It is not seen as an OIA request, but a
request for a task to be undertaken.


I can advise that I have spoken to the Department’s web team and they will
undertake the updating of the website when they have the staff resources
to do so, but probably within the next 2-3 weeks – especially as the
appointments have only just been announced.


I can also advise that 2 years ago a decision was made not to include
photos on the website, as many members objected, so it was considered
better to have none, rather than only 2-3 per board.
