Exclusion of the Press and Public

Members of the public and representatives of the press are hereby notified that the Panel may determine that this hearing should be held in private having regard to:

 

(a)  The rules on confidential and exempt information as defined by Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972 and whether

(b)  In all the circumstances of the case, the public interest in maintaining any exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information.

 

Should this be the case, the public and the press will be excluded from the meeting during consideration of agenda items 5 onwards for consideration of Complaints, 1, 2 and 3 for the reason that it is likely in view of the nature of the business to be transacted that there would be disclosure to the public of “exempt information” being information of the nature described in Paragraph 1 (Information Relating to Any Individual) of Part 1 of Schedule 12A to the Act and the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information.
