EXCLUSION OF PRESS AND PUBLIC

 

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

 

 

“that under Section 100A of the Local Government Act 1972 the press and public be excluded from the meeting for the following items of business on the grounds that they involve the likely disclosure of exempt information as defined under the relevant paragraph of Part I of Schedule 12A to the Act. 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.”
