Dear Ranjit,

I am following up with respect to question two of your request.

This information is not recorded in a retrievable format in our system. This means that the information would need to be counted manually. This would likely become substantial collation which would be grounds for refusal under section 18 (f) of the act.

Would you be okay for me to respond with the general intent of allocation for this question?

Kind regards
Adam
