Dear Mr Hayward

A decision was made on your request by Tanya Rossington on 28 July 2011.

The sections of the Act which can apply to deny access to the documents
are known as its "exemptions provisions". As the application of the
provisions to particular records can be complex, detailed information on
their consideration in this particular case is given below.

The information you requested was:

Which other officers were on the 'shortlist' for the position of Deputy
Chief Constable of Northumbria Police?

This information is exempt from disclosure under section 40(2) of the
Act as it is information which could lead to individuals being
personally identified and would breach the data protection principles by
providing that information without the express consent of the data
subjects. It would breach the first data protection principle of fair
and lawful processing.

Right to a review:

You may apply to the Deputy Chief Executive and Solicitor, Northumbria
Police Authority, Civic Centre, Regent Street, Gateshead, NE8 1HH, for
an internal review of the decision. This will be a fresh consideration
of your request by a more senior officer. If you wish to request a
review must do this in writing within 40 days of receipt of this letter.

Following the internal review if you are still unhappy you have a right
of appeal to the Information Commissioner as specified below.

Rights of appeal:

For a decision whether, in any specified respect, a request for
information made by you to the Department/office has been dealt with in
accordance with the requirements of Part 1 of the Act.

The Information Commissioner shall consider the matter fully and make a
fresh decision.

Yours faithfully
