If the Committee wishes to consider the remaining item in private, it will be appropriate for a resolution to be passed in the following terms:

It has been decided by the Council that in all the circumstances, the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information.”

(Note:  If any other confidential business is approved under Item 3, it will also be necessary to specify the class of exempt or confidential information in the additional item(s)).
