We cannot provide this data at the programme level as to do so would
breach EU competition law. As such, the programme level information is
exempt under Section 44 of the Freedom of Information Act.
If you think that the information provided does not meet your request,
contact me on 020 7849 4622 or write to Kevin Haynes, Head of Legal Team,
Governance, Legal and Policy Division, London School of Economics and
Political Science, Houghton Street, London, WC2A 2AE. We will then review
the response to your request and get back to you within 20 working days.
You can also contact the Information Commissioner's Office
http://www.ico.gov.uk/, though they expect the internal review to be
carried out before receiving a complaint directly.

Act 2000 does not imply a right to copy, reproduce publish or otherwise
use such information.
Copying or reproducing such information in any way either in whole or in
