    ...which or that you would like answering...

    Hi

    I am writing 'I wonder if you have any further questions which you would like answering following on from your consultation.', but should it be '...that you would like answering...'. I'm struggling to understand which one would be most appropriate. I would also appreciate it if you could possibly correct my sentence if you feel it doesn't sound as good as it could (to make it more flowery).

    Many thanks

    You could use either for me. I think you could simplify it by removing the part about answering the questions, because it is clear that you will answer them- you wouldn't be asking otherwise. I don't think it needs to be flowery. You could use something like Should you have any further questions after your consultation, please do not hesitate to ask us.

    You should aim for less flowery writing. Direct, clear writing is best.
