Dear Kent Police,

Can you please tell me:

How much money your force has spent on Stonewall products for each year between 2015 and 2021, and if the sums include VAT?

Can you further indicate which products were being purchased and how much each indvidual product was purchased for?

Specifically, I am referring to any fees paid to the LGBT charity Stonewall for things such as membership schemes, conferences, training, or merchandise such as rainbow laces.

Yours faithfully,

Richard Norrie
