13 Any other items which the Chair decides are Urgent:
In considering whether to exclude the public and press from the next part of the meeting Members are asked to consider the following factors when determining the public interest test.
Agenda Item 14 - Not for publication by virtue of Paragraph 14 of Part 4 of Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act 1972 (as amended). The Proper Officer has determined in considering this report that paragraph 14 should apply. His view on the public interest test was that while he was mindful of the need to ensure the transparency and accountability of public authorities for decisions taken by them in relation to the spending of public money, the right of the Council to the privacy of their financial/ business affairs outweighed the need for that information to be made public. In addition, disclosure of the information would give an unfair advantage to tenderers for commercial contracts. This information is not affected by any other statutory provision which requires the information to be publicly registered. On that basis he felt that the public interest in maintaining the exception outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information.
It is, therefore, recommended that the press and public be excluded from the Meeting during consideration of the following item as it is likely that, if they were present, there would be disclosure to them of exempt information as defined in Paragraph 14 of Part 4 of Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act 1972 (as amended).
14 Revised Telecare Business Plan and Telecare Charging 2011/12 to 2013/14: To consider the report of Phil Walton, Strategic and Performance Director (Copy herewith).
