Dear Mr Brown
 
Freedom of Information Act 2000
 
Thank you for your request for information concerning The amount of public
money given to two anti-hate crime organisations every financial year for
the last three years (Tell MAMA and the Jewish Community Security Trust).,
which we received on 22 March 2016.
 
We are handling it under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
 
We do hold this information, but unfortunately I will not be able to give
you a response within the normal 20 working days. I need additional time
to give extra consideration to the public interest in releasing it.
 
The Freedom of Information Act 2000 allows this when one or more qualified
exemptions apply to the information. In this case the exemption I am
consider is section 35 (1) (a) which relates to the formulation or
development of policy.
 
I estimate that it will take an additional 20 working days to take a
decision on where the balance of the public interest lies. Therefore, I
will respond to you by 20 May 2016.
 
Complaints procedure
 
If you are unhappy with this response, we will review it and report back
to you. (This is called an internal review.) If you want us to do this,
let us know by return email within two months of receiving this response.
You can also ask by letter addressed to:
 
Department for Communities and Local Government
Knowledge and Information Access Team
1st Floor NW, Fry Building
2 Marsham Street
London, SW1P 4DF
 
If you are unhappy with the outcome of this internal review, you can ask
the independent Information Commissioner to investigate. The Information
Commissioner can be contacted at email address [1][email address] or
use their online form at [2]ico.org.uk/concerns or call them on 0303 123
1113.
 
 
Yours sincerely
