Subject: Sheffield City Council Race Relations – Freedom of Information Request – Reference FOI/228

Dear Resources Business Support,

Thank you for your reply.

You wrote:
“The Public Sector Duty however does not require us to pay due regard to the specific groups you note below, those are Police identifiers.”

Yes, those are the Police identifiers of the different Races.

Please would you send me the list of Race identifiers that Sheffield City Council use if they are different.

If you do not have a list of Race identifiers I fail to see how Sheffield City Council can have “due regard” for Race Relations as required by the Public Sector Equality Duty (Equality Act 2010).

If you are unable to help please would you let me have the email contact details of the person responsible for Equalities in Sheffield City Council.

It is very clear that the Police recognise the Racial difference between the IC1 White North European (Caucasoid) and the IC2 Dark South European (Melanochroid) Races and record and use this data for legal purposes.

Please can I have an Internal Review of Sheffield City Council Race Relations.

I am very concerned that no effort is being made to achieve European Race Equality.

I look forward to a reply from the correct person on this very serious issue.

King regards

Derrick Lynch, Black, IC3, B9, BEUR

Dear Derrick Lynch

Thank you for your recent request for information regarding Due regard to appropriate equality legislation which we received on 22/05/2015.

Please find below, Sheffield City Council’s response to your request:

With regard to your email Sheffield City Council pay due regard to the general Public Sector Equality Duty in a number of ways, see our website for further detailed information.

The Public Sector Duty however does not require us to pay due regard to the specific groups you note below, those are Police identifiers.

“Please would you send me details of where I can find Council information showing that “due regard” has been exercised in recording and monitoring Race Relations between the IC1 White Northern European Race and the IC2 Dark Southern European Race as required by the Public Sector Equality Duty (Equality Act 2010).

We do not monitor the same classifications as the Police do, however please find links to our monitoring form and monitoring information on our staff , customers, our partners and city information, in line with our Duties.

Subject: Sheffield City Council European Race Relations

To whom it may concern at the Council,

I am Derrick Lynch.

I live at 5 Hedge Hill, Enfield, London, EN2 8RU.

I am classified, by the British Government, as an IC3, Black, Male.

I have attached illustrated versions of the Race and Ethnicity Codes as used by the British Police and Civil Services.

I am a victim of Racism which I understand as being the same as White Supremacy.

I have been reading the Council website.

The Public Sector Equality Duty (Equality Act 2010) requires public authorities to have ‘due regard’ to the need to:

1. Eliminate discrimination, harassment and victimisation and any other conduct that is prohibited by or under the Act.

2. Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a relevant protected characteristic and people who do not share it.

3. Foster good relations between people who share a relevant protected characteristic and those who do not share it.

This is a Freedom of Information Act request.

I am concerned about the management of European Race Relations and not about Ethnicity Relations or Diversity Relations.

As you know Race is one of the “Protected Characteristics” in the Equality Act 2010.

Race a Protected Characteristic

Refers to the protected characteristic of Race. It refers to a group of people defined by their race, colour, and nationality (including citizenship) ethnic or national origins.

Note 1: http://www.equalityhumanrights.com/private-and-public-sector-guidance/guidance-all/protected-characteristics

Race as defined by the British Police

Code

Ethnicity

IC1

White – North European / White European

IC2

White – South European / Dark European

IC3

Black

IC4

Asian (in the UK Asian refers to people from the Indian subcontinent like India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal)

IC5

Chinese, Japanese, or other South East Asian

IC6

Arabic or North African / Middle Eastern

IC9

Unknown

Please follow these links to understand the Official British Government codification of the differences between Race and Ethnicity.

Race not to be confused with Ethnicity

I have given the link to the Ethnicity Data Standard as specified by the Information Standards Board to make it clear that I am not asking for Ethnicity information.

Failure to manage Race Relations effectively results in the failure to address the problem of Racism.

________________________________________________________________

This is the Freedom of Information Act request.

Please would you send me details of where I can find Council information showing that “due regard” has been exercised in recording and monitoring Race Relations between the IC1 White Northern European Race and the IC2 Dark Southern European Race as required by the Public Sector Equality Duty (Equality Act 2010).
