“It seems very reasonable to suggest that taxpayers have an interest in knowing what is taught in universities. The recent Pittilo report suggested that degrees should be mandatory in Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine. So it seems natural to ask to see what is actually taught in these degrees, so one can judge whether it protects the public or endangers them. Since universities in the UK receive a great deal of public money, it’s easy. Just request the material under the Freedom of Information Act. Well, uh, it isn’t as simple as that. Every single application that I have made has been refused.” DC Science (20th October 2009)
