    To locate and collate the remainder of the information requested the Trust would have to identify and assign files to the correct area, request the relevant files back from archive, review each case file and collate the information from these.  The Trust has determined that this would take over the 18 hour limit laid down in the Freedom of Information Act, therefore we are applying exemption s.12 to this request.
