Dear Michael
I am writing to respond to the letter you sent me about DeepMind's
communications with the National Grid. 
I respect that some of the information in the emails may be commercially
sensitive, so I would like to request that the metadata instead. 
Can you please tell me how many communications there have been between
DeepMind and the National Grid and the dates that those communications
took place?
Many thanks
Sam
