Access to Information - Exclusion of the Press and Public - Agenda item 9

During discussion of the following item (Agenda Item 9) it may be necessary to pass the following resolution to exclude the press and public having reflected on Section 1.34 in Part A of the Constitution (decisions are as open and transparent as possible). This decision may be required because consideration of this matter in public may disclose information falling within one of the descriptions of exempt information in Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act 1972. The Committee will need to decide whether, in all the circumstances of the case, the public interest in maintaining the exemption, outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information.

Recommend that under Section 100A(4) of the Local Government Act 1972 the public be excluded from the next item of business (Agenda Item 9) on the ground that it involves the likely disclosure of exempt information as defined in paragraph 3 respectively of Part 1 of Schedule 12A of the Act, namely information relating to the financial or business affairs of any particular person (including the authority holding that information).
