Dear Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health,

I hope to hear from you soon. Thank you.

Dear Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health,

I made my request on 8th February, but have not received any reply from you, not even an acknowledgment.

I will now ask for an internal review, and if you are still refusing to reply I will go to the Information Commissioner.

Medical Royal Colleges should have in interest in the influence on them of groups campaigning for an extreme ideology, such as Stonewall. And then they should inform the public.

I look forward to a reply very soon.

Yours faithfully,

U. Winfield

Dear U. Winfield,

Thank you for your enquiry and apologies for the delayed response.

In response to your request for information, as we are not a public authority, I’m afraid we are not legally required to comply with Freedom of Information requests.

Kind regards,
