Dear Gwent Police and Crime Panel,

I am writing to respectfully make a request in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000. My request is as follows:-

1) Please, can you provide a list of all employee roles who are employed by your authority and are subject to the provisions as set out in the Official Secrets Acts 1911-1989?

This can be provided in any format, however, a spreadsheet detailing each role and a mark as to whether the role requires the role holder to sign a declaration as to their recognition of being bound thus required to comply with the Act(s).

2) Please provide a disclosure of the format used by your authority which requires the signature of any role holder who is subject to provisions as set out in the Official Secrets Acts 1911-1989 such as an "Official Secrets Acts & Confidentiality Declaration"

If I am able to provide any further information in order to assist your search for information in order to successfully respond to this request, please do not hesitate to contact me.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours faithfully,

to be approved by the Home Office. The panel members receive a small
attendance allowance and travel expenses for each meeting they attend and
they average five meetings per annum. Caerphilly County Borough Council
