Under section 25(1) of FOISA, we do not have to give you information which is already reasonably accessible to you. If, however, you do not have internet access to obtain this information from the websites listed, then please contact me again and I will send you a paper copy.
However, you may wish to note that the Education Governance Review consultation questions were open ended and we did not ask specifically for agreement/opposition with those ideas outlined in question 15. A numeric analysis of the consultation responses would therefore not be viable in this instance.
