Agenda item

Exclusion of Press and Public

It is recommended that the Press and Public be excluded from the meeting during consideration of the item in Part 2 of the Agenda, as it involves the likely disclosure of exempt information relating to the financial or business affairs of any particular person (including the Authority holding the information) as defined in Paragraph 3 of Part 1 of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972 (amended).


The Part II appendices were considered and noted during Part I of the meeting, without disclosing any exempt information, therefore there was no requirement for the Cabinet to exclude press and public who were present for the duration of the meeting.


The Cabinet was able to conduct all business during Part I of the meeting therefore the press and public were not excluded from the meeting.
