Exclusion of Press and Public

The Panel is RECOMMENDED that the public be excluded for the duration of item 13 in the Agenda since it is likely that if they were present during this item there would be disclosure of exempt information as defined in Part I of Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act 1972 (as amended) and specified in relation to the respective items in the Agenda and since it is considered that, in all the circumstances of each case, the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information.

This decision notice does not contain exempt information and is available to the public.

 

The public should be excluded during discussion on this item because its discussion would be likely to lead to the disclosure to members of the public present of information in the following prescribed category:

 

3.       Information relating to the financial or business affairs of any particular person (including the authority holding that information) and since it is considered that, in all the circumstances of the case, the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information, in that such disclosure would prejudice the trading activities of the fund managers involved and would prejudice the position of the authority's investments in funding the Pension Fund.
