  • Hewitt and Co Solicitors for a letter

'I acknowledge receipt of your letter dated the 2nd of April. The purpose of my suggestion that my client purchases an area of land from yourself is that this can be done right up to your clearly defined boundary in which case notwithstanding that the plan is primarily for identification purposes on the ground the position of the boundary would be clearly ascertainable this in our opinion would overcome the existing problem.

I look forward to hearing from you once you have reconsidered the situation.'

  • Yorkshire Electricity for a letter to a customer

'Thank you for your letter dated 28 March 1995.

'I am sorry that my earlier reply did not answer your query fully and I hope my comments below will clarify the matter to your satisfaction.

'As mentioned in Mr Hughes letter of 10 March 1995 there are 63 working days each quarter or 252 working days per year based on Monday to Friday each week but excluding holidays.

'Customers' meters are due to be read on the same working day each quarter. This means that the fixed charge is equivalent to 63 actual working days: 63 nominal working days x quarterly fixed charge. So in a full quarter the charge is £13.21 x 63 : 63 = £13.21— this is irrespective of the dates when the actual meter readings take place. The actual meter reading dates each quarter may vary from the nominal date for the appropriate working day in the quarter but the method of chargin ensures that the amount of fixed charges does not exceed 4 times the amount of the quarterly fixed charge.

'When a customer receives their first or last bill at an address the amount of the fixed charge is calculated by apportioning the normal quarterly fixed charge over the number of working days between the date of connection and the date when the meter reading is due to be taken, for a first account, or for the number of working days between the date the last meter reading was due to be taken and the actual date of the final meter reading.

'The amount of the fixed charge on your final bill was calculated as follows:-

quarterly fixed charge — £13.21

multiplied by 4 (number of working days since the working day when the last meter reading was due)

divided by 63 (number of working days in a full quarter)

Total £0.84

'I hope this satisfactorily explained how the amount of the fixed charges are calculated each quarter and on first or final bills.'
