- Please provide in full (or redacted where necessary to protect business interests) all contracts between CLV and the University regarding the provision and maintenance of student accommodation.
- Please provide a response as to why the University decided to enter into an LLP with CLV.
- Did St Andrews University Services Limited, or the University of St Andrews, or any other wholly or partly-owned subsidiary of the University of St Andrews approach CLV initially in respect to potential LLPs, or were these contracts offered to tender?
- What role does St Andrews University Services Limited have in the management and provision of student accommodation during term time.
- If the principal activity of St Andrews University Services Limited is the running of accommodation services during vacation periods, as outlined in annual company reports and University financial statements, please provide clarification as to why the decision was made to enter this subsidiary of the University into an LLP with CLV, rather than the parent institution the University of St Andrews.
- Please disclose the framework for rent increases as agreed by the University and CLV within contracts regarding the provision and maintenance of any accommodation in St Andrews.

Given the extended nature of these contracts, they should be open to fair scrutiny and therefore the public interest should be found to lie in favour of their disclosure.

Yours faithfully,
