Hi Regan,

Thank you for the fast reply.

Our interpretation of your request of "whether the Government has invested public money in any of the following companies:" is that you are asking for information on the current investment holdings as of 13th February 2020 in the companies listed in your OIA request.

Could you confirm if this interpretation is correct?

Thanks,
Ben
