Dear Department for Education
I should be grateful if you could give me details of academy trusts receiving
advances to stabilize their finances in financial year 2018/19:
1 Total amount
2 Names of trusts receiving these loans
3 Amount of each loan
4 Conditions of repayment (eg term, interest)
You rejected this FoI request in April. However, academy accounts for year ending 31 August 2019 have been (or should have been) published and the information should now be in the public domain.
I should be grateful if you did not refuse this request because the information is available elsewhere (ie in trust accounts). This would require trawling through hundreds of trust accounts which it is unreasonable to expect me to do.
Thank you for contacting the Department for Education, you will usually
receive a reply within 15 working days.
You can find out how the department processes your personal information by
