Dear OIA,

I note that you have not replied by 14 December 2021, and there has been no extension notification. As I assume you are going to follow the law, I am requesting you resend the release as it clearly hasn't come through - or can you please confirm that you have not responded within the statutory timeframe and the reasons for it.

Yours sincerely,
