B. BUSINESS ITEMS

3.

EXCLUSION OF THE PUBLIC

Recommended –

 

That the public be excluded from the meeting during consideration of the item relating to the appointment to the position of Director of West Yorkshire Pension Fund 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 Paragraphs 1 (information relating to an individual) and 2 (information identifying an individual) of Section 12A of the Local Government  Act 1972 (as amended), would be disclosed and it is considered that, in all the circumstances of the case, the public interest in applying these exemptions outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information.

 

4.

APPOINTMENT PROCESS TO THE POSITION OF DIRECTOR OF WEST YORKSHIRE PENSION FUND

The Panel will be asked to interview and select a candidate for appointment to the position of Director of West Yorkshire Pension Fund and notify the proper officer in accordance with the Council’s Officer Employment Procedure Rules.
