Your request for information has now been considered and I am not obliged to supply the information you have requested for the financial years 2009/10 to 2013/14.

The exemption applicable to this information is Section 21 – Information reasonably accessible by other means. This is an absolute and class based exemption and as such does not require a harm and public interest test.

The Forensic Science Budget is publicly available to view on our website under Previous FOI Requests. I have provided a link for ease of reference.
