This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Queen Mary University of London,

I'm requesting a copy of the document outlining the Block Grant given from QMUL to Queen Mary University of London Students' Union (QMSU) for it's activities - which includes not only the total value of the grant, but also guidance on how to spend the block grant and the process by which spending is reviewed by the University.

I'm requesting a copy of this document for the last 5 academic years; 2016/17, 2017/18, 2018/19, 2019/20, and 2020/21.

Please note I've previously directly requested information in FOI Request 2020/F372. However I want to expand this and want full copies of the documents specified.

Yours faithfully,
Harris Nageswaran

Dear Queen Mary University of London,

Dear Harris Nageswaran,


Thank you for your email of 23^rd February. Please accept our apologies
for the delay in responding.


We have not been able to locate the information you requested pertaining
to years 2016/17 to 2018/19.


The information relating to 2020/21 is refused under s.14(2) as it is a
repeat of a request you made in September 2020 from a different email
address, to which you have referred.


Please find attached the relevant letter relating to 2019/20. Information
has been withheld under s.41 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 on
pages 4 and 5. This is because it is information provided by the students’
union to Queen Mary with an expectation of confidence.


If you are dissatisfied with this response, you may ask QMUL to conduct a
review of this decision.  To do this, please contact the College in
writing (including by fax, letter or email), describe the original
request, explain your grounds for dissatisfaction, and include an address
for correspondence.  You have 40 working days from receipt of this
communication to submit a review request.  When the review process has
been completed, if you are still dissatisfied, you may ask the Information
Commissioner to intervene. Please see [1] for details.


Yours sincerely


Paul Smallcombe

Records & Information Compliance Manager
