How to make a Freedom of Information request
The Freedom of Information Act 2014 allows you to access, to the greatest extent possible, information held by the Department. It gives you the right to have your personal data corrected or updated and to get reasons for decisions taken by the Department that affect you.

- State in your letter that the request is being made under the Freedom of Information Act 2014.
