Back in 2009 I started to use Freedom of Information to find out about the number of campaign actions to a handful of departments that I’d been involved in running campaign actions towards.
DEFRA was one of them and here are the results of the actions they received in 2007 and 2008 as pdfs to view through scribd.com
Total number in 2007 – 108,617 (38,191 emails and 70,426 postcards)
Total number in 2008 – 155,419 (30,429 emails and 124,990 postcards)
I also asked for information for 2005 but they were unable to provide this, and 2006 where I was informed they received 75,000 actions.
Information taken from Freedom of Information request returned on 9 March 2009 and is taken from a list of information provided by DEFRA.
