Declarations of Interest
To receive any declarations of interest from Members relating to items to be considered on the agenda.
To consider whether or not the press and public should be excluded from the hearing into the report of the Public Services Ombudsman for Wales under:
· Section 100 (A) 4 of the Local Government Act 1972 (as amended) on the grounds that it involves the likely disclosure of exempt information as defined in paragraph 13 of Part 4 of Schedule 12A of the Act, and
· Section 100 (A) 4 of the Local Government Act 1972 (as amended) on the grounds that it involves information which is subject to any obligations of confidentiality and that it applies to the deliberations of a Standards Committee established under the provisions of Part 3 of the Local Government Act 2000 in reaching any finding on a matter referred to it as defined in paragraphs 18 (a) and 18 (c).
Conducting those deliberations in public might inhibit full and frank discussion to the detriment of the administration of the business of the committee.
Members are asked to consider whether the public interest in maintaining the
exception outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information, when
considering excluding the public from this part of the meeting.
