Dear University of Chester FOIA,

Apologies, the name Felix Silvester was a 'joke', bad timing i know, based on the Latin name for Scottish Wildcat, which is Felix Silvestris. My real name is associated to this account, so i thought that it would not be a problem.

Could you please process my FOI request with me using my non-joke name of Michael Grant?

Sorry again,

Yours sincerely,

Michael Grant

Dear Mr Grant

The University has published on its website an article dated May 2013 (https://www.chester.ac.uk/node/19462) which details some of the work undertaken by Dr O'Donoghue. However , following Dr O'Donghue's departure from the University the University does not hold a record of the research undertaken by him in this area. Moreover. the University does not hold DNA samples and is not undertaking research or work into feline genetics.

Dr O'Donoghue was employed as a member of academic staff and as such was paid to undertaken such task as is reasonable expected within that role.

Please send responses to [email address]
