Incubator Support Initiative Duty Statements prior to May 2019

The request was successful.

Dear FOI Team,

I have recently received the Incubator Support Initiative Duty Statements released in May 2019.

Thank you for releasing these under administrative access.

I would also like to request the duty statements that were in force prior to May 2019 and I am happy to accept these under administrative access also if it saves work under the FOI Act.

I am sorry about applying for these documents in two takes when I could have easily given it more thought in the first instance.

Thank you in any case.

Yours faithfully,

Harry Witherspoon
