Dear Mr Stephens

Thank you for answering our query but we have a further query.

"Apologies in my first email I should have stated this request is for correspondence ( written communication via email or post) within the last 2 years. If 2 years is not possible in the last calendar year 19th December 2022 -19th December 2023"

Further to your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, please can you clarify the following?

• Do you require every email that was sent to another EDI organisation or are you only interested in Stonewall?

To locate, redact and provide every email sent to another EDI organisation would probably engage a disproportionate cost.


Please note that, as per the Act, your request will be placed on hold pending your response to this email, which may affect the date of the response deadline. We will hold the request for two weeks, after which, if we have not had a reply from you, we will close the request.
