routinely published information, how you can view that information
and whether you will have to pay for it. Information may be subject
to copyright so if you wish to make multiple copies or publish it
in any way you will need to let us know.

has had no part in dealing with your initial request. This will be
done within 20 days of your initial response.
If the complaint is not upheld and you are still not satisfied,
