Martin Heathcote made this Freedom of Information request to Essex County Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Dear Essex County Council,

Please provide a list of all emails between the Council and non-Council personnel (sent or received) between 1st January 2010 and 18th March 2011 which contain one or more of the following keywords or phrases in the 'subject' or 'body' of the email :

The list should contain the following information :

- Name of sender
- Organisation to which sender belongs
- Name of recipient
- Organisation to which recipient belongs
- Subject of the email (this is the term which MS Outlook uses for the title of an email)
- Date
- Keywords found (from list above)

I have constructed my FOI request in this way to ensure that you are not asked to provide any information which post-dates the contract notice, and also to save you the cost of redaction of sensitive information. A competent person should be able to perform this search well within the statutory time allocation.

If you feel the need to redact names of junior council staff, please provide reasonable indications of role. If you choose to redact the names of external people, please provide the name of their organisation and an indication of role.

Yours faithfully,

Martin Heathcote

Ruth Byford Research & Analysis Officer, Essex County Council
