Dear Department for Education,

I should be grateful if you could let me have details of non-repayable grants to
academy trusts to stabilize their finances in the financial year 2018/19:

1 Total amount
2 Names of trusts
3 Amounts which each trust received

My earlier FoI request asking for this information was refused. However, academy trusts have now published their accounts for academic year 2018/19 (or should have done). The information, therefore, is in the public domain.

I should be grateful if you do not reject this FoI on grounds that the information is available elsewhere (ie trust accounts). This would expect me to trawl through hundreds of trust accounts which is unreasonable. In any case, the information could be hidden under a general heading such as 'other grants'.

Yours faithfully,

J Downs
