Dear Sir or Madam,

Please provide all documentation identifying the date that Mr Jerry White, made the DCLG aware as Deputy Chair of the CLAE that he had taken up other appointment and was no longer able to meet his role. This is from an FOI to University of London.

'Mr White has in fact been appointed as a Visiting Professor, having previously been employed as a Senior Research Fellow in the School of History, Classics and Archaeology.

Visiting Professorships are not advertised, but are offered to specific individuals through nomination by the Head of School and approval by the College's Academic Board or by the Master of the College in his capacity as as Chair of the Academic Board.

The Master gave approval to the appointment on 4 February 2009, having received a nomination from the Head of the School on 3 February. The Visiting Professor appointment procedure does not require interviews. The post is funded by the College central budget (85%) and the School local budget (15%).

It appears odd that Mr White would be able to meet his duties as Deputy Chair of the CLAE and LGO if meeting these competently whilst also having other employment.

Please further identify any documents where the CLAE have made DCLG aware of this situation.

Yours faithfully,

Stuart Hardwicke Carruthers

Vanita Patel, Department for Levelling Up, Housing & Communities
