Freedom of Information Request

How many NRM referrals did this borough's Trading Standards Department make about victims involved in the illegal tobacco supply chain?

This is a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act. I found that from 2019-2020, West Yorkshire Trading Standards referred 13 victims in the illegal tobacco supply chain to the NRM. (https://awardsv2.hgl-content.co.uk/Content/awards/Documents/1218/MJ_Awards_App_Cheap_Illicit_Tobacco_Team.pdf)

In light of this, I would like to be provided with the following information:

From June 1st 2020 to Jan 1st 2021, how many NRM referrals did this borough's Trading Standards Department make about victims involved in the illegal tobacco supply chain?

For each of these instances I would like to know:
* The date of referral
* Age of the victim
* Gender of the victim
* Any records which further detail the involvement of the victim in the illicit tobacco supply chain (e.g were they selling the tobacco).
* Their nationality

I would like to receive the information in an electronic format. If you feel that a substantive response to this request is not possible within a reasonable time frame, or the request is too broad, I would be grateful if you could contact me by telephone xxxxxxx) and provide assistance as to how I could refine the request.
