Justice CommitteeWritten evidence from Loughborough University

In response to your call for evidence in relation to the above on behalf of Loughborough University I would like to support fully the submission of UUK on this subject.

The issues raised in the UUK submission are a fair summary of the views of Loughborough University in relation to FOI.

I would like to emphasise our support for appropriate openness and transparency for our organisations but confirm a view that the administrative burden placed upon us is disproportionate to the intended aim of FOI.

I feel that a more appropriate requirement for making available publically certain information could be a better solution to the aims.
