Dear [email address],

I'm not sure why this response took 9 days.

you ask

"In order for us to deal with your request please could you clarify whether
you require all emails sent and received in that time period or Emails
sent and received about Prince Charles. "

the request was

"please provide details of all emails sent and received by council staff from 1st July 2015 to 31st December 2015 including reference to prince Charles"

This seems quite straight forward as all emails sent and received in that period about Prince Charles. I can only assume your question means there are other emails about Prince Charles outside of that period? If so and it is not that time consuming and does not slow the process then Im happy to receive those to.

I would not expect the need to clarify this to slow the original time frame for responding to the FOI

Kind Regards

Arthur Fisher

Dear City of York Council,

You have misinterpreted the request. The exemption applies to communication with the heir. The request was for correspondence between council staff/members that including reference to Prince Charles. For example. “Dear x did you see Prince Charles on the news yesterday”

Yours faithfully,

Arthur
