Dear Ms. Bell,

My first request for tree-ring data held by QUB stated the following.

It might be that this request is exempt from the FOIAct, because the data being requested is environmental information. If you believe that to be so, process my request under the Environmental Information Regulations.

I have seen no further comment on that.  I would like to know the reasoning that led to my request being processed under the Freedom of Information Act, instead of EIR.
