Dear Office of the Prime Minister,

I'm emailing to follow up on this request. On 30 June you provided me with the first tranche of your response, the list of brieifngs from 1st January 2022 to 31st March 2022. You advised me then that the final tranche, the list of briefings from 1st April 2022 to 26 May 2022, would be coming "in the next month".

As it has been more than a month since you sent me that letter, I was looking to follow up on this and ask when I can expect the remainder of your response.

Yours sincerely,

Scott
