51(c) Exclusion of Press and Public
52.3 In accordance with Section 100A of the Local Government Act 1972 (“the Act”), the Health and Wellbeing Board considered whether the public should be excluded from the meeting during consideration of any item of business on the grounds that it is likely in view of the business to be transacted or the nature of the proceedings, that if members of the public were present during it, there would be disclosure to them of confidential information as defined in Section 100A (3) of the Act.
52.4 The Chair, Councillor Moonan, referred to the additional information contained in the report at Item 56 on the agenda. This report had been circulated to solely to members and was exempt under category 3 of Section 100A of the Local Government Act 1972. If Board Members wished to discuss any of the information contained therein any press and public who were present would need to be excluded from the meeting. Consideration of those matters would then take place in closed session.
52.5 RESOLVED - That the public be not excluded from any item of business on the agenda, unless discussion is to take took place in respect of information contained in Item 56 which was exempt under category 3, at which point any press and public who were present would be required to leave the meeting.
52.6 Note: Ultimately, all matters were discussed and determined whilst the press and public were present and it was unnecessary for them to be excluded from the meeting.
52.7 The Chair explained that on this occasion it had not been possible to webcast the meeting and would not therefore be available for future viewing.
