4. EXCLUSION OF PRESS AND PUBLIC

“that under Section 100A (4) of the Local Government Act 1972, the press and public be excluded from the meeting for the following item(s) of business on the grounds that it involves the likely disclosure of exempt information as defined under the relevant paragraph of Part 1 of Schedule 12A to the Act”.
