Report of the Director of Law & Governance Monitoring Officer (RC5).

 

The Council’s Constitution allocates to the Committee the responsibility for appointments to outside bodies other than to those identified by the Cabinet as ‘strategic’. 

 

The report identifies the bodies to which appointments now need to be made and reviews the process for making them.  It also sets out any proposed new additions. 

 

The Committee is RECOMMENDED to:

 

(a)       give consideration to and make the appointments to the non-strategic outside bodies listed in Annex 1 (to Follow);

 

(b)       note the review of the category ‘C’ outside bodies shown at Annex 2 to the report  and give consideration to the mechanism for appointments to Category ‘C’ bodies.

Exempt Item

It is RECOMMENDED that the public be excluded for the duration of item RC6 since it is likely that if they were present during that 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 below in relation to those items 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.

 

THE REPORT AND ANNEXES TO THE ITEM HAVE NOT BEEN MADE PUBLIC AND SHOULD BE REGARDED AS ‘CONFIDENTIAL’ BY MEMBERS AND OFFICERS ENTITLED TO RECEIVE THEM.

 

THIS ALSO MEANS THAT THE CONTENTS SHOULD NOT BE DISCUSSED WITH OTHERS AND NO COPIES SHOULD BE MADE.

 

6.

Redundancy Quarterly Report

The information contained in the report is exempt in that it falls within the following prescribed category:

 

2          Information which is likely to reveal the identity of an individual

 

It is considered that in this case the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information, in that such disclosure would infringe the rights of the individual to privacy contrary to the general law and the duty of the authority to respect human rights and to comply with that law and contrary to the authority’s duties as a fair employer.
