Dear Mr Moran 
 
I write further to your request for information, of today’s date, about barristers 
meeting their mandatory reporting requirement under UN Resolution 260. 
 
First, please note that the General Council of the Bar is not subject to the Freedom of 
Information Act as we are not a public authority as outlined in Schedule 1 of the Act; 
however, we endeavour to respond to such requests with within the spirit of the Act, 
in the interests of transparency. 
 
You set out eight questions in your request, as follows: 
 
1. Does the Bar Council know that the political ideology known as "multiculturalism" was 
the official ideology of the United Kingdom between 1997 and 2011? 
 
2. Does the Bar Council believe that the political ideology known as "multiculturalism" 
breaches one, or more, articles of United Nations Resolution 260? 
 
3. Does the Bar Council know that the political ideology known as "multiculturalism" has 
been exposed as a form of genocide by Nick Griffin MEP in 2011 in the European 
Parliament?

4. Does the Bar Council know that the political ideology known as "multiculturalism" has 
been exposed as a form of genocide by Frank Fields MP in the Westminster Parliament in 
London? 
 
5. Does the Bar Council know that breaches of one, or more, articles of United Nations 
Resolution 260 carry a mandatory reporting requirement? And failure to meet the 
mandatory reporting requirement under United Nations Resolution 260 is an act of genocide 
in itself? 
 
6. Does the Bar Council know that Doughty Street Chambers have met their mandatory 
reporting requirement under United Nations Resolution 260? 
 
7. Does the Bar Council know what other Barristers' Chambers have met their mandatory 
reporting requirement under United Nations Resolution 260? 
 
8. Has the Bar Council contacted any Barristers' Chambers to verify they have met their 
mandatory reporting requirement under United Nations Resolution 260? Please provide 
copies of all correspondence related to this question.  
 
Your questions 1-7 are not valid requests. While the FOI Act allows people to request 
information, subject to any exemptions in the Act, the information requested must be 
held in a recorded form. We do not hold any recorded information in relation to 
these questions. We are not required to create new information in order to respond 
to a request. 
 
In response to the only valid request you made, at question 8, the answer is no – the 
Bar Council has not contacted any Barristers’ Chambers with regard to UN 
Resolution 260. 
 
That concludes our response.  
 
Yours sincerely 
 
Hilary Pook
