Investments in Extractive Companies

We're waiting for Tahliah Balogun to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Peterhouse, Cambridge,

This is a formal request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Could you please provide the approximate value and number of shares or any other forms of direct investment, if any, currently held in each of the following companies by the college?
a) BHP
b) Anglo-American
c) Glencore
d) Freeport McMoRan
e) Rio Tinto
f) Vale S.A.

If you are to invoke Section 43 to withhold information in relation to any of these questions please note you must provide details of the exact FOIA exemption, details of who would be prejudiced by this information, and a public interest test justifying a conclusion with arguments for and against the release of the information.

If you are to invoke Section 12 to withhold information in relation to any of these questions please provide details of how locating, retrieving and extracting this information would exceed the appropriate limit of £450 as set out in the Freedom of Information and Data Protection (Appropriate Limit and Fees) Regulations 2004. Please also be aware of your duty under section 16 (1) of the Act to advise and assist me in narrowing my request to bring it within the appropriate limit.

Thank you very much for your assistance with this request. If you would like any clarification on the information I have asked for, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

In its guidance the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) said that the requirement to respond 'promptly' and the requirement to respond no later than 20 working days were to be considered as separate obligations. Public bodies should be able to justify why it took them as long as 20 days to respond to requests in cases where they do not act more promptly than that "long stop" deadline. I look forward to receiving your response in the next 20 working days. If you are unable to provide a response in the next 20 working days please provide an updated timeline by the deadline 18/05/2021.

Please confirm upon receipt of this email.

Yours faithfully,

Tahliah Balogun

Liz Wake, Peterhouse, Cambridge
