Request for information in emails by Rother District councillor Ian Hollidge regarding local fossil collector and his legitimately collected fossil

Rother District Council did not have the information requested.

Dear Rother District Council,

I would like to first thank you for all your help regarding previous RDC FOI requests thus far in this matter.

I should like to request the following information held on your e-mail servers which relate to myself, Jamie Hiscocks and my legitimately collected fossil - the dinosaur endocast (fossilised dinosaur brain), in emails sent between these dates: 01/01/2017 - 01/05/2018 sent by Rother District Councillor Ian Hollidge, e-mail: [email address] to the following email recipients:

Richard Parker-Harding e-mail address: [email address]
Brenda Mason e-mail address: [email address]
Julian Porter e-mail address: [email address]

I should prefer to receive these in electronic format at this email address, however, I am happy to receive them by post if that is more convenient.

If for any reason you feel this request is unclear, please do not hesitate to contact me. If you are not the appropriate authority for this request, or for part of it, please let me know as soon as is convenient.

Thank you.

Your faithfully,

Jamie Hiscocks

Yours faithfully,

Jamie Hiscocks

Dear Rother District Council,

Do you have an update on how my FOI request relating to ex councillor Mr Ian Hollidge and the fossilised dinosaur brain endocast is progressing? Only, worryingly, I haven't received any acknowledgement of the email from you. However, the What Do They Know group have notified me that the email was successfully delivered and as you can see this is shown on their website.

Yours faithfully,

Jamie Hiscocks

foi, Rother District Council
