Exclusion of Press and Public

The press and public are likely to be excluded from the meeting during consideration of the following agenda item which contains exempt information.


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 etc. 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. The following statement will be proposed, seconded and voted upon:


“I propose that the Press and Public be excluded from the meeting during the consideration of the following agenda item 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 of the Act relates 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 as to why the information is exempt.
