Exclusion of the Public

Minutes:

The Committee considered the request to exclude the public for the remaining agenda items on the grounds that it was not in the public interest to disclose the information because discussion would include detailed financial information that is commercially sensitive and the disclosure of the information may impact on, or prejudice, future trading of a group company.

 

Following a vote the Committee agreed to the exclusion.

 

RESOLVED to exclude the public from the meeting during consideration of the remaining agenda item(s) in accordance with Section 100A(4) of the Local Government Act 1972 on the basis that, having regard to all the circumstances, the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighed the public interest in disclosing the information, as defined in Paragraph(s) 3of Part 1 of Schedule 12A to the Act.

The Committee made recommendation as set out in the exempt minutes.
