Some parts of the City of London Corporation function like a public body (eg the City Fund) while others (e.g. City’s Cash) somehow do not.

For the purposes of the Equality Act’s PSED, is it a Public Sector entity?

    What does "fully subject to" mean? In its capacity as a local authority, port authority and police authority, the City of London is subject to the PSED.
