Thames Valley Police Nid oedd gan y wybodaeth y gofynnwyd amdani.

Dear Thames Valley Police,
I understand that Michelle Obama made a visit to Oxford, to Christ Church in particular. 25 May and there were costs associated to this visit, not least the closing of the M40 and then all the cars and horses.
As a tax payer - who paid for this and when all the officers were deployed on Obama-watch, did crime rise in Kidlington?

I see no reason why you should not disclose any of these facts.

Yours faithfully,

Clare Alison Davies

payer - who paid for this and when all the officers were deployed on

Dear Ms Shields

Thank you for your response. I see a small error in your response and wonder if you were to search for costs related to the operation at Christ Church as opposed to Chris Church, your answer might be different. I have checked my original request and there is no doubt that I asked about Christ Church. It is within your records that the "t" has become lost. Perhaps encouraging you to search for something relating to an individual rather than the Oxford College.

I appreciate your help but am not yet convinced.

Yours sincerely,
