Communication with Royal Collection Trust regarding Sir Thomas Picton statue

The request was successful.

Dear Cardiff Council,

This FOI is regarding the statue of Sir Thomas Picton at City Hall, Cardiff.

Please could you confirm the following from information you have within the last 12 months:

1. Any Information you have which confirms whether or not there has been any correspondence between Cardiff Council and the Royal Collection Trust regarding the proposal to remove the Statue of Sir Thomas Picton form the Hall of Heroes at City Hall - in the last 12 months.

2. Any information you have which confirms whether or not there has been any correspondence between Cardiff Council and the Royal Collection Trust regarding the proposal to improve the way that the Statue of Sir Thomas Picton at the Hall of Heroes at City Hall is presented to the public - in the last 12 months

3. Any information which shows any opposition from the public and elected councillors regarding the proposal to remove the statue of Sir Thomas Picton from City Hall.

4. Any information which shows what Cardiff Council are doing to improve the way that this statue is presented to the public.

6. Any information which confirms whether or not Cardiff Council supports the idea of putting a plaque or a description board containing a balanced description of Picton next to the statue which would improve the way that the statue is interpreted by the public instead of removing the statue to a new location.

7. Any information from Cardiff Council regarding their actions of putting a box around the statue and details of when this statue will be visible again.

8. Any information which confirms that Cardiff Council has discussed whether or not they will use the following description to describe the statue of Picton which resembles the description given by the Royal Collection Trust.

"Picton's punitive administration of Trinidad and his subjects' enforced adherence to strict penal codes were the subject of contemporary controversy in Britain and the West Indies.
He was brought to trial in London in 1806, accused of carrying out torturous practices in jails under his jurisdiction. He was later partially exonerated, on the grounds that while he had committed illegal acts not befitting his role as military governor, the right to torture prisoners was recognised under the Spanish laws still enforced at the time."

Yours faithfully,

Alex Robertson

Cardiff Council
