to: "Burgess Jacquelin Prof \(ENV\)" <>


I held a meeting this morning with Keith Briffa, Tim Osborn and Phil Jones, to discuss a
FOIA request which had come from one of the contributors to the website.
Dave Palmer, the University's FOIA expert, was also present. It was agreed that I would
alert you to this for your information. (You may recall that I alerted you to a number of
similar requests from another contributor to the website last year, involving Phil.)

We have agreed a plan of action to deal with this request within the regulations. The
request is unreasonable as it currently stands (it asks for all letters and emails between
Keith and 19 individuals worldwide and 5 organisations over IPCC business). I will keep you
posted on this as necessary.

Best wishes
