Milo Yiannopoulos

Dear University of Salford,

I would like to be supplied with copies of all teaching materials for the MA Social Media course you offer.

This would include any lecture booklets detailing lecture titles and subjects, reading lists, support documents, course texts where available, marking criteria and so on.

When considering whether and how to fulfil my request, I ask that you refer to the Information Commissioner's judgment of 30 March 2009 in the case between the University of Central Lancashire and Dr David Colquhoun. You can read that decision here:
http://www.ico.gov.uk/upload/documents/d...

You may also wish to read Dr Colquhoun's blog post on the subject:
http://www.dcscience.net/?p=1364

Dr Colquhoun's blog details the various rulings at his tribunal. No doubt you will be familiar with all this already.

Yours faithfully,

Milo Yiannopoulos

Dear Matthew,

Thank you for your acknowledgement. Are you able to confirm that you will be responding to my requests in the statutory time period, that is, by 18 October?

I write in reference to both the request for course materials and the request for copies of the correspondence and the committee

Please inform me, as a matter of urgency, whether, how and when you plan to respond. If I do not hear from you by Friday, 22 October, I will be requesting an internal review.

Yours sincerely,
