Clare Goodess from Compliance to Avoidance in a Matter of Months

In Feb 2005 Clare Goodess announced to the CRU that they would be complying with the Freedom of Information Act:

from: Clare Goodess
subject: Freedom of Information Act
to: cru.internalatXYZxyz.ac.uk

Dear all

All CRU staff should have received important emails from Alan Preece on 14
and 29 January concerning the Freedom of Information Act which came into
full force on 1 January 2005 - together with a leaflet. (If you are a
member of staff and haven't received these, please let me know).

It is important that we all comply with this act. If anybody in CRU (staff
or student) receives a request which refers to the Freedom of Information
Act (FOIA), please forward it immediately to the Faculty of Science FOIA
contact - Mike McGarvie (x 3229, m.mcgarvieatXYZxyz.ac.uk) and copy it to Phil
and myself. If you are unsure about the request or it is unusual, please
copy to Phil and myself and we'll decide if we need to consult Mike McGarvie.

Best wishes, Clare

Dr Clare Goodess

But by September 2005, Clare had decided that FOIs are complicated and 'politically sensitive'...

The whole situation is quite complicated and politically sensitive.

Would it be possible for Tim and Dave to meet to discuss this. I
think this would be the most efficient way of handling things.
