Confirmation Hearing for the Chief Finance Officer of the PCC pdf icon PDF 741 KB

Following notification from the Thames Valley Police and Crime Commissioner of the impending retirement of Ian Thompson, the PCC proposes to appoint Martin Thornley to the post of Chief Finance Officer and Deputy Chief of Staff.

 

In accordance with the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011 (paragraph 10, sub-paragraphs (2) to (4)), the Panel must:

         review the proposed senior appointment

         make a report to the PCC on the proposed appointment

         include a recommendation as to whether or not the candidate should be appointed.

4.

Exclusion of Press and Public

To resolve that the press and public be excluded from the meeting during the next item of business, as it is likely, in view of the nature of the business to be transacted or the nature of the proceedings, that if members of the public were present during that item there would be disclosure to them of exempt information within Paragraph 3 of Part 1 Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act 1972, being information relating to the financial or business affairs of any particular person (including the authority holding the information).

 

While there may be a public interest in disclosing this information, namely openness in the deliberations of the Panel in determining its recommendation regarding the proposed appointment, it is felt that, on balance, this is outweighed by other factors in favour of maintaining the exemption, namely enabling a full discussion regarding the merit of the proposed appointment.
