I sent you an FOI request at 1:58pm on 9 March.
You acknowledged it with an automated response at 1:59 on 9 March as follows:
We often receive thousands of identical emails each month from organised campaigns. Ministers and officials are made aware of these campaigns, but unfortunately we cannot reply to each email when such large volumes are received.
Ministerial Contact Unit
Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) This email and any attachments is intended for the named recipient only. If you have received it in error you have no authority to use, disclose, store or copy any of its contents and you should destroy it and inform the sender. Whilst this email and associated attachments will have been checked for known viruses whilst within Defra systems we can accept no responsibility once it has left our systems. Communications on Defra’s computer systems may be monitored and/or recorded to secure the effective operation of the system and for other lawful purposes.
You are way out of time. Please reply by the end of the week or I shall initiate a complaint through your internal system and carry it on to the information commissioner when you fail to comply.
PS the request was for confirmation of reported remarks made by your Secretary of State – you know, Mr Gove.
