Exclusion of press and public

If the Committee wishes to exclude the press and public from the meeting during its consideration of items on the exempt from publication part of the agenda, it will be necessary for the Committee to pass a resolution in accordance with the provisions of Section 100A(4) of the Local Government Act 1972 specifying the grounds on which their presence could involve the likely disclosure of exempt information as defined in Part 1 of Schedule 12A of the Act if and so long as, in all the circumstances of the case, the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information.

 

(The Access to Information Procedure Rules at Section 16 of the Council’s Constitution set out the conditions under which the public can be excluded from meetings).

 

Recommendation: to resolve to exclude the press and public from the meeting during its consideration of the remaining business on the agenda in accordance with the provisions of Section 100(4) of the Local Government Act 1972 because their presence could involve the disclosure of exempt information relating to candidates for interview as defined in paragraphs 1 and 2 of Part 1 Schedule 12A of that Act, and the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information.

 

Minutes:

The Committee resolved to exclude the press and public from the meeting during its consideration of the remaining business in accordance with the provisions of Section 100A(4) of the Local Government Act 1972 because their presence could involve the likely disclosure of exempt information relating to candidates for interview as defined in Part 1 of Schedule 12A of the Act, and the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information.

 

 

5.

Appointment of Interim Director of Housing

To consider an appointment to the post of Interim Director of Housing.

 

Exempt for reasons set out above: The public interest in maintaining the exemption is so that discussions and deliberations of the Committee with and about candidates are not compromised and so that the confidentiality of information provided by candidates is protected.

Minutes:

The Appointments Committee interviewed a number of candidates for the post.

 

The Committee agreed to select Paul Leo as their preferred candidate for the post of Interim Director of Housing, for a period of time to be confirmed

 

and delegated the making of the offer of the post and agreement of all terms and conditions including salary to the Chief Executive,

 

subject to confirmation within a time set by the Head of Business Improvement that no member of the Cabinet has any objection to the appointment, or the Appointments Committee is satisfied that any objection is not material or is not well-founded (paras 7.8 and 20.6 of the Constitution refer).
