Good morning Mr Hirsch,

Thank you for your response. The request you are referring was combined with CRM 2018/574 pursuant to s 24(2) of the FOI Act (as advised by Jacqueline Ellery in her email dated 22 April 2018). This was because the two applications relate to documents the subject matter of which is substantially the same, apart the date range. I apologise for any confusion.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions.

Kind regards,

KATHERINE (AFP 22948)
