Exclusion of Press and Public

The law allows Councils to consider a limited range of issues in private session without members of the Press and public being present.  Typically, such issues relate to personal details, financial and business affairs, legal privilege and so on.  In every case, the public interest in excluding the Press and Public from the meeting room must outweigh the public interest in having the information disclosed to them. 


While the committee report at agenda item 9 is in the public domain, the appendices contain information that is commercially sensitive. If the Committee wants ti move into private session to consider those appendices, the following motion must be proposed, seconded and voted upon. 


"I propose that the Press and public be excluded from the meeting during the consideration of the appendices to the following report number 9 in accordance with Section 100(A) (4) of the Local Government Act 1972 on the grounds that, if present, there would be disclosure to them of exempt information as defined in paragraph 3 of Part 1 of Schedule 12A of the Act.”


Paragraph 3 applies to Information relating to the financial or business affairs of any particular person (including the authority holding that information).


If exempt (confidential) information has been provided as part of the agenda, the Press and public will not be able to view it.  There will be an explanation on the website however as to why the information is exempt.
