Please note that about 4 days ago I emailed you and cancelled my request . I also cancelled my membership and have an email from them confirming the cancellation. I do not understand why my email to you does not appear on the list of emails between us. I sent my email cancelling my request on the 9th January after you asked for details of the conduit. I am not an electrician and have no idea what type of conduit was used other that it is orange in colour No more emails please. Thank you
