Exclusion of the Press and Public

To move the exclusion of the Press/Public for the following item, in view of the likely disclosure of exempt information as defined in Paragraph 2 (Information likely to reveal the identity of an individual) of Part 1 of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972. In making its decision, the Panel is asked to confirm that having regard to all circumstances, it is satisfied that the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information. In this case the proper administration of the complaints procedure in the public interest is that consideration of complaints should not be made public when the complaints may or may not be proved and may or may not be investigated.
