Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of British Broadcasting Corporation's handling of my FOI request 'Number of women in leading roles'. Given your statements in your “Diversity and Inclusion Strategy” which state gender and age as examples of diversity, it is surprising that there is a reluctance to make this information public, especially as the Corporation is a publicly funded organisation and should welcome the opportunity of transparency in this area. I don’t feel that the reasons given for withholding the information are valid. Indeed, they are at odds with the Corporation’s stated strategy on diversity and inclusion.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/n...

Yours faithfully,

Christine Furneaux

Dear Christine,

As explained in our response the BBC does not offer an internal review when the information requested is not covered by the Act. If you disagree with our decision you can appeal to the Information Commissioner. Their contact details are below:

Information Commissioner's Office,
Wycliffe House,
Water Lane,
Wilmslow,
Cheshire,

Tel: 0303 123 1113

Please note that should the Information Commissioner’s Office decide that the Act does cover this information, exemptions under the Act might then apply.

Yours sincerely,
