EU Academic Staff

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Lancaster University should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Lancaster University FOI Team,

Some time ago, I wrote to you about the difficulties of recruiting academic staff from the EU in the current political climate. I am concerned, but hopeful that Lancaster has been able to continue to recruit EU staff in significant numbers.

I was wondering if you would be able to tell me:

1) How many new EU academic staff the university has been able to recruit over the last year
2) How many EU academic staff have left the university over the same time period
3) The overall number of EU academic staff currently working at Lancaster (this one is less important)

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,
Matthew Taylor

Dear Lancaster University Information Governance Unit,

Can you please update me on the progress of my FOI request about EU Academic staff?

Yours sincerely,
Matthew Taylor

Freedom of Information,

Dear Mr Taylor,

Thank you for your email.

I can confirm that we received your clarification concerning the time period covered by your request.

Unfortunately we have not been able to respond to your request within the 20 working day timescale. This is due to the University prioritising resources towards combatting the current pandemic.

The ICO have released some guidance for applicants which explains that they will not be taking regulatory action against organisations who cannot meet the statutory timescales linked to both FOI requests and information rights requests made under the GDPR, during the current public health crisis.
https://ico.org.uk/about-the-ico/news-an....

Please be assured that we fully intend to respond to all outstanding requests but we hope you can understand that the University has more pressing priorities at this difficult time.

Kind regards,

The Information Governance Team
Lancaster University
