Freedom of Information
The Freedom of Information Act 2000 makes it easier for you to get information about us.
This law, which came into force on 1 January 2005, means that anyone, anywhere can ask for any information we hold.
All you have to do is submit your request in writing, by letter or email, to any member of staff, stating clearly what information you want.
Don't forget to provide your contact details so we can reply to your request.
Responding to requests
Once we receive your request, we must reply, in writing, within 20 working days.
In our reply, we must confirm whether or not we hold the information, and either provide you with the information requested or explain why it is not being provided.
We may charge a fee before supplying the information you request. If so, we'll write to you giving details of the amount you must pay.
We also make a significant amount of information available to the public routinely which means you don't have to make a specific request for it.
Details of this information are listed in our Publication Scheme.
