Once this process is finished the document will be made freely available to the public via The National Archives website. This document is expected to be made freely available in the first quarter of 2017 financial year. Therefore, in accordance with section 22 of the Freedom of Information Act (information intended for future publication) this document is exempt from disclosure at this time. Due to resources, unfortunately, I am unable to contact you when the document has been published. I can therefore only suggest that you visit The National Archives website periodically in 2017 to determine when the document has been uploaded.
