finalise it as quickly as possible. However, the department is currently

would sit with the line area who has responsibility for the department’s
continued response to the coronavirus.


On this basis, the department is seeking an extension of 30 calendar days,
with a decision to be provided to you no later than COB 25 May 2020.
