Hi Kate,

It's a bit late now but I thought I'd mention it's always worthwhile asking for charges to be waived on public interest grounds.

You can even use the fact that you're using Right To Know as further evidence that releasing the information would be in the public interest, i.e. the documents will be automatically publicly published online.

If you'd like to give it another shot you'll probably have to create a new request, I'm not sure if they'd reopen this one.

Cheers,

Henare
