Intention to cover cost of EU settlement scheme fee

Request 

Hello 

I would like to request the following information under the Freedom of Information Act:

-          Are you intending to cover the cost of the EU settlement scheme fee for your employees affected by Brexit?

-          How many EU national employees do you estimate have applied or will need to apply under the scheme?

-          If you are covering their fees, what is your estimate for how much in total the cost is to you?

 

I would be grateful if you could provide the information as soon as it becomes available rather than waiting the full 20 working days allowed under the Act. 

This is to help with a story we are preparing for BBC News. If you would like to discuss this further, please feel free to ring me on 0777 913 7367.

Kind regards
