Dear Ermine Amies,

Please find attached our response to your recent Freedom of Information
request (reference FOI2021/02590).

Dear Crown Commercial Service,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Crown Commercial Service's handling of my FOI request 'Information about your dealings with Stonewall #DontSubmitToStonewall'.

Your response was:

____________________________

I must inform you that, by virtue of section 14(2) of the Freedom of Information Act, a public authority is not obliged to comply with a request for information if the request is repeated. Your recent requests are substantially the same as the one you made on 04/02/2021 (FOI2021/02442) to which you received a reply on 11/03/2021. I do not consider that enough time has elapsed to make a difference to the reply you received then and I shall take no further action on this request.”

____________________________________________

04/02/2021 FOI2021/02442 was a request to the Cabinet Office, a department of the Government.

06/02/2021 FOI2021/02590 is a request to the Crown Commercial Service, an executive agency.

So request FOI2021/02442 was a request to a government department and this request is to an executive agency, a different legal entity.

Both organisations are “Diversity Champions”.

So section 14(2) is not applicable.

Please review.
