Requests for information under the Freedom of Information Act need to be made using the contact us form or in writing to the department. You must include your name, a return address and a description of the information required. Make your request as specific as possible. If it is too broad, we may ask you to clarify it which could mean a delay in our response.
Provide as full a description as possible of the information you require. Be clear about the format in which you would prefer to receive the information, for example by email or as a paper copy. When you send in your request, click the ‘Yes’ button on the contact us form, under the question ‘Is this enquiry being made under the Freedom of Information act?’ and mark the ‘Subject’ box or envelope, ‘Freedom of Information.’ This will help speed up the process of your enquiry.
