Dear Jane,


I am writing in response to your request for information received by UCL
on 30 June. Please accept our apologies for the fact that we were not able
to respond within 20 working days.


Further your request we can confirm that UCL has set up an informal
network of colleagues covering those areas of UCL’s services and
operations that may be impacted by the Statutory Duty.  An action plan
will be developed to ensure that UCL is compliant with the Duty once the
legislation is passed by Parliament in September 2015. This will be done
in junction with the London HEI Prevent network and advice and guidance
from UUK.
