Prof Hand and the Oxburgh inquiry

Andrew Montford made this Freedom of Information request to Imperial College London

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Imperial College London,

You previously released to me Prof Hand's correspondence regarding the Oxburgh inquiry.

In his evidence to the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee on 27 October, Prof Davies of the UEA stated that members of the Oxburgh panel had received copies of UEA's submission to the Muir Russell inquiry. However, your previous FOI release to me does not seem to contain this document.

Could you therefore please clarify this discrepancy - did Prof Hand receive this document? If so could you please release the relevant correspondence, including the submission.

Yours faithfully,

Andrew Montford

IMPFOI, Imperial College London

Dear Andrew

Thank you for your email, I shall look into this and get back to you in
due course.

Kind regards
