        5. Need for Part II Exclusion of Press and Public
          The Committee is asked to consider whether, in respect of Agenda Items 7 & 8 the public, including the press, should be excluded from the meeting on the basis that it is likely, in view of the nature of the business to be transacted or the nature of the proceedings, that if a member of the public were present during the items there would be disclosure to them of exempt information within Paragraph 1 of Part I of Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act 1972, being information relating to any individual, and that in all the circumstances of the case, the public interest in maintaining the exempt information outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information. This conclusion is reached on the basis that whilst there is a public interest in maintaining the transparency of Authority proceedings, the individual’s right to privacy outweighs any public interest in releasing this information at this time.
        6. Public Participation
