Dear Lisa

 

Thank you for your email below requesting information about our dealings
with Stonewall. We are handling your request under the terms of the
Freedom of Information Act 2000 (The Act).

 

I am writing to let you know that we are not yet in a position to respond
to your request. This is partly because some of the information you have
requested is held in the inbox of a former member of staff and it has
taken us a bit of time to retrieve it.  

 

Furthermore, we have applied a public interest extension to your request
for information. We have taken this decision under section 10(3) of the
Act which allows additional time to be added for consideration of the
public interest test in relation to one of the qualified exemptions in the
Act.

 

Sport England holds information falling within the scope of your request,
but we consider it to be exempt from disclosure under Section 43 (2) of
the Act because disclosing this information would be likely to prejudice
the commercial interests of a third party. We will now consider whether
the balance of the public interest lies in maintaining this exemption or
disclosing the information. In determining the balance of the public
interest, we will be guided by the good practice recommendations issued by
the Information Commissioner’s Office.

 

Our final response will be sent to you not later than 6 April 2021.

 

Thank you for your patience.

 

Kind regards

This message has been hidden. On 9 April 2021 Sport England informed the WhatDoTheyKnow.com team that they had been notified by a third party of personal information present in their response. Sport England did not specifically identify the personal information in question so we did not immediately hide the response from public view. On 13 April 2021 Sport England provided a replacement response which can now be seen on the request thread. We have not reviewed the voluminous material in detail so still do not know the full extent of the personal information which was originally released but has now been redacted. As of 14 April 2021 we spotted the additional redaction of a job title, pronouns contained in email signatures, and someone's first name. It does appear that there may have been a data protection breach by Sport England here, so we have removed this original response from public view. It appears the replacement response substantively includes all the information provided in the original response, there are the same number of attachments in each response. The original response is still accessible to the requester. Please contact us if you have any questions. If you are the requester, then you may sign in to view the message.

Data Protection Officer, Sport England

Dear What Do They Know Recipient,

 

I am the undersigned Data Protection Officer at Sport England.

 

With respect to Sport England’s FoI disclosure - Freedom of Information
request - Information about your dealings with Stonewall
#DontSubmitToStonewall - made to you on the 6 April 2021 at this email
address we have been notified by a third party data subject that personal
data has been included in the material we disclosed and which is now
published on your site.

It was Sport England’s obligation to ensure any personal data relating to
a third party was redacted before providing the material to you.

We have conducted a further review of the material supplied by us which
was published by you and must concede there is personal data included
which should be redacted.

We know you have a policy for dealing with inadvertently published [1]here
and will complete your contact form to comply with your procedures but
also considered a direct approach would be more appropriate in the
circumstances.

 

Accordingly we respectfully request that you remove the material from
publication and also return the cache of disclosed documents to us at
[2][Sport England request email] .

We make this request in order to ensure that neither us ( nor you through
our actions) continue to process any third party data subject’s data
without appropriate authority.

We will undertake the necessary redactions and return the material to you
within one calendar month of today’s date, if you consider that
acceptable.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and will keep you
apprised of any further actions.

 

If you would be good enough to notify us when the cache has been removed
so that we can notify the data subject we would be extremely grateful.

If you have any other questions or concerns please do not hesitate to
contact me at the methods of contact listed in the footer below.

 

Respectfully,

Gaile Walters

Dear Lisa

 

I write further to our email of 6 April 2021 responding to your request
for information received on 4 February 2021.

 

It has come to our attention that some of the documents attached to our
response of 6 April 2021 contained personal information that could
identify some of our stakeholders and employees. As personal information
is exempt from disclosure under Section 40 of the Freedom of Information
Act 2000 (FOIA), we have now carried our further redactions to these
documents to ensure that all personal information is removed.

 

We would therefore be grateful if you could treat this email as a
replacement response to that issued to you on 6 April 2021. Please note
that we have attached the same documents previously released to you
however we have carried out further redactions on some of them to ensure
that all information exempt under Section 40 of the FOIA has been removed.
We would also be grateful if you could delete the response sent to you on
6 April 2021 and appreciate your cooperation in this regard.  

 

We have now considered your request and I have set out our response below.

1. Any application you made in 2019 or 2020 to be a “Stonewall Diversity
Champion” or to be included on Stonewall’s “Workplace Equality Index,”
including any attachments or appendices to those applications. Please
redact personal details if necessary.

2. Any feedback you received in 2019 or 2020 from Stonewall in relation to
either application or programme.

 

Sport England holds some of the information requested at points 1 & 2
above but, after careful consideration, we have decided that the following
exemptions to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) apply to the further
information held:

 

o Section 41 applies because some of the information was provided to us
in confidence. Section 41 is an absolute exemption, however before
using the exemption, we have to consider whether there is an
overriding public interest in the information being disclosed even if
it would breach the provider’s confidence;
o Section 43(2) applies because disclosing some of the information you
have requested would be likely to prejudice the commercial interests
of a third party. Section 43(2) is a qualified exemption, so we are
required to carry out a public interest test to determine whether the
public interest in releasing the information outweighs the public
interest in withholding it;

 

There is a presumption that information should be released unless there
are compelling reasons to withhold it. The public interest test requires a
public body to balance the public interest in withholding the information
against the public interest presumption in favour of disclosure. We have
done this by carrying out a scoring system which is set out in a tabular
form below. We have used a scale of 0-5, with 0 having the least weight
and 5 having the most weight, to determine the weight for and against each
public interest factor. The public interest factors in favour of or
against disclosure are derived from guidance and legislation and they have
also been included in the table.

 

Factors in favour of disclosing the Factors in favour of withholding the

Prejudice would occur, effect severe

 

Having considered all the above factors, we are satisfied that the balance
lies in favour of withholding the information on this occasion. We are
therefore refusing to disclose the information requested at points 1 &2.

3. Any other communication you have received from Stonewall in 2019 or
2020 unless privileged or otherwise exempt from disclosure (but if you
claim privilege or exemption in relation to any material, please say in
broad terms what the material is and the basis on which you claim to be
entitled to withhold it).

 

Please see the attached documents. As you can see, we have redacted the
personal information from the documents as we consider this information to
be exempt from disclosure under section 40(2) of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000. The names and direct email addresses of our
non-senior, non-public facing staff and stakeholders constitutes personal
data as defined by the Data Protection Act 2018. Our staff and
stakeholders have a reasonable expectation of privacy and would not expect
us to make information about their working lives public. As such,
disclosure of this information would be neither fair nor lawful and in
direct contravention of the first data protection principle. We are
therefore refusing to disclose this information.

4. Full details of any equality impact assessment you carried out
connected with any of these applications (including any equality impact
assessment carried out prior to an earlier application of the same kind,
if no further assessment was done).

No equality impact assessment was completed.

5. Details of the total amount of money you paid to Stonewall (i) in 2019;
(ii) in 2020, whether or not as payment for goods or services.

Total amount spent £5,766.67.

 

2019

POHR2006707 - Rainbow laces - £341.67

PO18155 - LGBT meeting - £170

PO18729 - Membership – £2,500

 

2020

PO19591 - Rainbow laces - £255

PO20401 - Annual Diversity Champion Programme – £2,500

 

Sport England has not made any grant awards (Lottery or Exchequer) to
Stonewall.

6. Whether you intend to continue your membership of any Stonewall scheme
in the future, and if so which.

 

Sport England intends to continue Membership of the Diversity Champions
Programme and in the future will take part Stonewall’s Workplace Equality
Index.

 

This completes our response to your information request.

 

As a public body, Sport England is subject to the terms of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 and this means you are entitled to complain if you
are unhappy with the way we have handled your information request and/or
ask us to review our decision.

 

If you would like to complain about the way we have handled your request
or ask for our decision to be reviewed please contact:
[1][Sport England request email] 

 

Please describe your original request, explain your grounds for
dissatisfaction and include an address for correspondence. All internal
reviews are carried out by a colleague who has not previously been
involved in the handling of your information request. We aim to complete
internal reviews within twenty working days.

the right to appeal to the Information Commissioner. Generally speaking
the Information Commissioner will not be able to consider an appeal unless
you have first exhausted the Internal Review procedure provided by Sport
England.
