Strangeness from Norfolk Constabulary
Nov 2, 2011
Bishop Hill in Climate: CRU

At the start of the year, I emailed Norfolk Constabulary and asked for details of their financial expenditure on the UEA inquiry. I got a pretty good response without any problems.

Today, however, I got a further email about this request.

We have just noticed an error in our previous response to your request for information.  The cost figure shown for November 2010 was given as £34,454.61 and should have been £38,454.61.  The total cost figure remains the same as previously provided.  I have attached the amended response letter.

How odd that someone should be looking at this data so long after the FOI request had apparently been put to bed. I recently complained to the ICO about another FOI request to Norfolk Constabulary - this was about their correspondence with the Russell panel.

I wonder if there is a connection.
