7.

EXCLUSION OF THE PUBLIC

 

Recommended –

 

That the public be excluded from the meeting during consideration of the item relating to Industrial Services Group (ISG) on the grounds that it is likely in view of the nature of the business to be transacted or the nature of the proceedings, that if they were present, exempt information within Paragraph 3  (Finance or Business Affairs) of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972 (as amended), would be disclosed and it is considered that, in all the circumstances, the public interest in excluding public access to the relevant part of the proceedings outweighs the interest in publication of the report.

 

It is in the public interest in maintaining these exemptions because it is in the overriding interest of proper administration that Members are made fully aware of the financial implications of any decision.

 

8.

INDUSTRIAL SERVICES GROUP (ISG)

The Strategic Director of Corporate Resources will submit a report (Not for Publication Document “AJ”) which provides an update to the Corporate Overview and Scrutiny Committee on the financial and social value performance of ISG.

 

Recommended –

 

That the recommendation contained in Not for Publication Document “AJ” be approved.
