I did receive a reply stating the request was being actioned on the 30th of September but have received no information since.

I understand the department has been busy, so I have provided an extra time period to provide you with time to fill this request, but I would like to remind you at this time of your lawful obligation to respond in a timely and prompt manor. As it has now been over 50 days which I consider an acceptable period for a response.

Failure to respond to this request will result in a complaint being made to the Ombudsmen under the Ombudsmen Act 1975.

Yours faithfully,

Ian McDonald
