This inquiry has now reported
The Committee published its follow-up report on the disclosure of climate data from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia (UEA) on Tuesday 25 January 2011. The Government response was published on Friday 6 May 2011.
On 23 June 2011, the Chair of the Committee wrote to Professor Edward Acton, Vice-Chancellor, University of East Anglia, seeking an update on the UEA’s handling of Freedom of Information requests. Professor Acton responded on 13 July 2011 and 24 August 2011 and the Committee agreed on 18 July and 7 September to publish his responses online:
On the 31 March 2010 the former Science and Technology Committee published a report on the disclosure of climate data from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia (UEA) (PDF 312.75 KB) (HC (2009-10) 387-I).
Due to the approaching general election the Committee had to complete its work in March 2010 before two reviews that UEA itself had set up reported. These two reviews have now completed their work and published their conclusions and recommendations. The Committee held two oral evidence sessions in September and October 2010 questioning the authors of the two reviews as well as witnesses from UEA. The sessions focussed on how the two reviews responded to the former committee’s recommendations about the reviews and how they carried out their work.
