Dear NYP

In regards to the first part to he request, in the "statutory" guidance it states that it is in the interests sof transparency and transparency is a mandatory obligation pursuant to the Code of Ethics under the Police Act and the Professional Standard of Behaviour under the Police complains (Conduct) Regulations.

As for part 2, for clarification purposes, you are officially declaring that you have never had a Scheme of Delegation document signed by he Chief Constable since 2012?

Yours sincerely,

Wayne Leigthon

Fryar, Liz, North Yorkshire Police

Dear North Yorkshire Police,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of North Yorkshire Police's handling of my FOI request 'Scheme of Delegation document'.

1) Transparency is compulsory

2) Good practice in guidance that is "statutory" guidance is an obligation. If it were not statutory then you would have an argument it is discretionary but this is not the case. A compliance adjudicator is unlikely to uphold intentional bad practice that runs contrary to statutory guidance.

3) If the internal review decision maker upholds this decision I will draw an inference and rely on that inference as evidence that no formal document has ever been signed for the delegation of the Chief Constable (Appropriate Authority)'s powers. If this inference is not true, please provide the documents that refutes it

Yours faithfully,
