Dear East Riding of Yorkshire Council,

Could you please provide me with following information:

Who or what exactly is East Yorkshire Council, and from whence is its authority to administrate property derived?
It is a maxim of law that “You ought to know with whom you deal” [Scire debes cum quo contrahis].

Is it incorporated, unincorporated, or something else?

Who is the acting CEO? if applicable.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Johnson

Dear Sir
Under Section 1 (3) Freedom of Information Act 2000, the council requests
clarification from you.
Please may you clarify what you mean by the following part of your request
"from whence is its authority to administrate property derived?". For
example, what sorts of property are you referring to and what do you mean
by 'administrate'?
Kind regards
Joe Smith

Dear Freedom of Information,

Many thanks for replying.

I may have got ahead of myself with the 1st question. Please ignore for now, my main objective with the FOI is to find out the following:

Is East Riding of Yorkshire Council incorporated, unincorporated, or something else?

Who is the acting CEO? if applicable

Many Thanks,

Martin
