subject: more FOI requests, re IPCC and Keith/John Mitchell
to:, p.jones@uea,

Hi Keith and Phil,

see Climate Audit <>, David Holland has
requested all John Mitchell emails sent/received relating to his role as
review editor (including to/from Keith and me). Met Office say there are
apparently very few, but have provided copies of some, including one from
you, Keith (which I think was just you forwarding Holland's recent letter
to you, Keith). An email from Susan Solomon to John Mitchell giving
advice about how to respond has been copied on to Climate Audit and

I'd never have expected that our emails would be publicly released in this
way! I wonder whether UEA will soon receive a similar request for our
email correspondence (more likely for Keith's)? Will we have someone from
the computer centre coming along and searching through our email boxes in
response to such a request? Or do they have copies of them all stored
centrally, even ones we've deleted? I guess we better be careful with
wording all emails related to David Holland, even informal ones!
