Peter

Whilst an MoU is the appropriate way to document this type of
relationship, it won't be possible, even with prudent drafting, for it
to be used as a shield against requests for information under the FOI
Act.

If you can detail the our relationship (the nature of the collab')with
UEA in an email to the 'legal' email inbox, one of the team will be in
touch to take this forward.

Regards

Tony

Tony,

we need to resolve our relationship with UEA's Climatic Research Unit as
shown by the current FOI request on the surface temperature record. We
have nothing in writing and that puts us on a sticky wicket. We'd like
to have writing for the next time it all blows up. Are you still the man
to talk to about setting up a MoU on all our collaboration? If not then
who is?

Thanks

Peter
