Anticipated reasons for restriction

HR and Finance System Maintenance and Support - Key Decision

By virtue of paragraph(s) 3, 5 of Part 1 of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972.

Explanation of Reasons

It is not in the public interest to disclose this information because it contains advice, which is subject to legal privilege. The public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the content of the report because it permits the decision maker to receive full and frank advice about legal issues without adversely prejudicing the City Council's ability to consider and manage those issues, and because disclosure of contract details could prejudice ongoing and future contract negotiations.
