Halliwells LLP/Chair of Audit Committee Ian Austin

The request was refused by University of Salford.

Dear University of Salford,

Given that Halliwells LLP - which recently went into administration - had Ian Austin as its Managing Partner up until the moment the iceberg hit, will the University of Salford be reviewing his position as Chair of their Audit Committee?

I would also like to know who within the University made the decision to pay Halliwells LLP to threaten me with unjustified accusations of defamation earlier this year, and whether Mr Austin was a party to this decision.

Yours faithfully,

Damien Shannon

Foi, University of Salford
