1) I would like to see any written correspondence between SOAS and the Metropolitan Police since 1st January 2013.

2) Moreover, I would like to see any documents held by SOAS that which relate to or mention plain-clothes police officers on SOAS grounds.


1) Between 1 January and 20 February 2013 (the date of your request) SOAS received three requests for personal data from the Metropolitan Police.

Please find attached the written correspondence relating to these requests.

Information relating to the individuals being asked about constitutes personal data as defined in the Data Protection Act and it would be unfair and unlawful to disclose this information in response to your request. This information is therefore considered exempt under section 40 of the Freedom of Information Act and has been redacted (blacked out) from the correspondence.
