Response

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (The Act) requires us to handle all
requests in a manner that is blind to the identity of the requestor. Any
information released in response to a request is regarded as being
published, and therefore in the public domain without caveat.

Your request for information has now been considered and I am not obliged
to supply all the names within the attached documents due to exemptions
provided by the Act.

In respect of Section 1(1)(a) of the FOI Act I can confirm that
Cambridgeshire Constabulary do hold the names that have been redacted
within the attached documents.

Section 17 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 requires Cambridgeshire
Constabulary, when refusing to provide such information (because the
information is exempt) to provide you the applicant with a notice which:
(a) states that fact, (b) specifies the exemption in question and (c)
states (if that would not otherwise be apparent) why the exemption
applies.

The exemptions applicable to the information are:

S40(2) Personal Information relating to a third party.

This exemption applies when the information requested is considered to be
the personal data of a third party where disclosure would contravene any
of the data protection principles outlined in S1 of the Data Protection
Act 1998 or S10 of that Act or where the disclosure of the information
would contravene the data protection principles if the exemptions
contained within S33(A) of the Data Protection Act 1998 were disregarded.

Section 40(2) is an Absolute and Class-based exemption for which there is
no requirement for a public interest test or expression of harm to be
provided.
