Year 20XX
Number; Ethnicity (identity code)
11 ; IC1

Dear Leicestershire Constabulary,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of Leicestershire Constabulary's handling of my FOI request 'Ethnicity recorded on witness statements'.

Thank you for your swift response to my FOI request. It is not clear from your response that the data you have supplied has been taken from MG11 forms or some other records. Please could you clarify what sort of documents were used to derive the 678 pieces of data supplied?

Are you able to satisfy my modified FOI request if it is restricted to MG11 forms for the year 2019?
1) Please state the number of cases where contact details forms associated with witness statements have the self-defined ethnicity recorded as "NS not stated" and also include a police defined ethnicity code.

2) For the cases in 1), please list the number of cases with a break down of the ethnic codes assigned by the police, e.g.

Year 2019
Number; Ethnicity (identity code)
11 ; IC1
22; IC2
33; IC3
44 ; IC4

and so on....

Yours faithfully,

M. Nah.
