EXCLUSION OF PRESS AND PUBLIC

The Board is RECOMMENDED to exclude the public for the duration of Item 7 since it is likely that if they were present during this item there would be disclosure of exempt information as defined in Part 1 of Schedule 12 A to the Local Government Act 1972 (as amended) and specified in relation to the item in the Agenda and since it is considered that, in all circumstances of each case, the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information.

3.         Information relating to the financial or business affairs of any particular person (including the authority holding that information) and since it was considered that, in all the circumstances of the case, the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighed the public interest in disclosing the information, in that such disclosure would distort the proper process of free negotiations with another party.
