2. Contacting the Treasury

If you send an e-mail or message to the Treasury, you may initially receive an automated response advising you how to find the information that you are seeking.  If that response is not helpful then we will answer your email personally.

In such cases we will only pass on personal data if it is necessary to do so, and we will not keep your personal data or records of our correspondence longer than necessary.
