The name(s) of the candidate(s) found appointable by the Advisory Assessment Panel will not be published, as this is classified as personal data under Section 40 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, and the Data Protection Act 1998. More broadly, it would be unfair to those who apply for public appointments, but who are not successful, to have their names published, and could discourage them from applying from other posts.
