Please you could update me as to when I can expect to receive the information. Thank you, I look forward to hearing from you.
With reference to your request for information under the Freedom of Information Act, please find attached the School’s response, with some additional information.
If you think that the information provided does not meet your request, contact me on 020 7955 7554 or write to Louise Nadal, School Secretary, London School of Economics and Political Science, Houghton Street, London, WC2A 2AE.
