EXCLUSION OF THE PUBLIC

    • Share this item

    Recommendation: To resolve that the public be excluded from the meeting during the following 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 I 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) and, further, that in all the circumstances of the case, the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing 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 merits of the proposed appointment.

16.

CLOSED SESSION: TO DISCUSS THE PROPOSED APPOINTMENT OF A DEPUTY POLICE AND CRIME COMMISSIONER FOR SURREY

    The Panel will hold a closed session in Part 2 to agree its recommendation to the Surrey Police and Crime Commissioner.
