40 days for Home Office Internal Review regarding handling of EIR request re Westminster Tracer Gas Trial

It seems that it could take up to 40 days for an Internal Review by the Home Office of our Environmental Information Regulations 2004 request regarding the Westminster Tracer Gas trials.

Perhaps we will get a proper response by the 20th of August.
