Partially but not fully answered. Museum of London is also considering a S43 exemption on feedback on they received in 2019 or 2020 from Stonewall in relation to either application or programme.

Dear Ruth Thomson,

A belated thank you,

I've spoken to the ICO who said you might be willing to consider undertaking an internal review as its less than 6 months since you responded to me. If you agree, I will drop you a note with the reason for the review.

Please advise.

Yours sincerely,

Ermine Amies

Dear Ms Amies,

 

Many thanks for your email, dated 17^th June, asking for an internal
review into the handling of your Freedom of Information request regarding
Stonewall, originally submitted 5^th February.

 

The Museum offers requestors the right to ask for an internal review,
provided they are within two months of the date of response to the
enquiry. Our response to your enquiry was 1^st April, and as you requested
an internal review on 17^th June, this is outside our internal review
timeframe. Guidance from the ICO and the Freedom of Information Code of
Practice states that public authorities are not obliged to accept internal
reviews after this date.

 

In line with this guidance, and our own procedure, we therefore regret to
inform you that we are unable to conduct an internal review at this time.

You may however seek an independent review from the Information
Commissioner. Please visit the ICO website at
[1]https://ico.org.uk/concerns or call their helpline 0303 123 1113.
