Dear Ermine Amies,

Further to our acknowledgement of your request, we are writing to provide an update.

Unfortunately we will not be able to issue our response by 5 March as advised in our acknowledgement letter of 10 February.

This is because there are a large amount of emails held that require review/redaction of personal information.

We will provide a further update by 12 March 2021 if we have not been able to issue our response before this date.

We apologise for the delay.

Dear Louisa,

Thank you. It is disappointing to have another delay as the law required an answer by 5 March.

I am concerned that you seem uncertain if you can comply with my request. You have not suggested ways in which you could do so.

Please note it could make it possible for you to comply with my request without further delay and without incurring excess costs by, for example, by providing me with a list of the custodians (by job title; I do not need to know names) you believe to have been the recipients of communications requested under this request so we can agree a lower number communications to redact.

That, of course, would not exhaust your duty to provide me with advice and assistance: there may be other ways in which you can help me to refine my request so that it captures a representative picture of your dealings with Stonewall without requiring additional delay.

Yours sincerely,

Ermine Amies
